Thank You for Getting Involved!
Settling new Canadians, who may not speak English, requires many types of services, some unanticipated. If you think you’d like to help, but are not sure how, here are some suggestions. If you would like to get involved, please contact us.
Volunteer Your Time
While we wait for our family to arrive, there are many tasks to prepare for their arrival, such as:
Organizing fundraising activities
Finding and setting up their new home
Driving to pick up clothes and furniture
There will also be on-going tasks once our family arrives, such as:
Driving them to and from appointments
Registering and introducing the children in schools
Organizing translators and English classes
Donate Clothes, Furniture or Accommodation
We want to ensure that our family has everything they need to be comfortable when they arrive. This list includes:
A furnished home
Toiletries, cooking supplies, tools, electronics, etc.
If you are able to provide an in-kind donation of accommodation to cover part or all of the cost of rent, it may be possible to arrange a tax deduction for this donation. For example, if you have a suite sitting empty in your house and would consider donating it to our family, please let us know.
Tell Everyone You Know
Please let your friends, family, co-workers and anyone else you can think of know about our organization, our website, and our Facebook page. Please “Like” us on Facebook and Twitter and encourage others to do the same. The more people supporting our project, the better able we will be to truly welcome our family to their new life.
Organize a Fundraising Event
If you’re the type of person who loves fundraising and events, why not create and sponsor your own fundraising event. We’ll support you in any way we can and all donations will be 100% tax deductible. To discuss ideas, please contact us.
If you don’t have the time to volunteer, please remember that financial donations are extremely important to ensure success. All the money you donate will go towards supporting our refugee family and your donation is 100% tax deductible.
