Paying it Forward!

Summer 2020

A donation of $1000 was sent to Residential Hospice of Grey Bruce Inc., by the Walkerton Action Committee. The original plan was to support the hospice with the proceeds from another all-you-can-eat pasta dinner at Pizza Delight in September 2020. Since that could not happen this year, committee members decided to pay forward the $1000 grant that was won for the Action Committee by students from Sacred Heart High School, Avrie and Eva Marie. Two members met with these students some months ago and acquainted them with the workings of the Action Committee and all they do to contribute to their communities and to our organization at CLWD. This was a project/contest at the school through the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative Canada.

The Action Committee was pleased to participate, as it was a very useful way of continuing the important message of inclusion. Thanks to the students involved and to Youth Philanthropy Initiative!
