Summer is fast approaching!
Kids are looking forward to fun in the sun and no school! So happy and carefree.
But those days are not so carefree for many parents and caregivers in our community struggling to make ends meet with the added stress of finding childcare. You see, the end of school means the end of a safe space for their children to go while working to keep a roof over their heads.
The end of the school year also means an end to school breakfast, lunch and snack programs that many parents in your community rely on so much to ensure their kids don’t go without something to eat.
But there are summer programs that are offered free to low income families made possible through your generous support of North York Harvest! Fun and supervised activities with belly filling food included, so that parents don’t have to worry and that kids can be kids!
Programs like the Boys & Girls Club offer free summer day camps – complete with healthy and nutritious meals to keep them fueled for busy days of fun in the sun! Your support also provides lunches for girls in the Lady Baller’s Club, a summer sports program for young girls in the community, prenatal programs, youth shelters and so much more!
Summer will be a little easier in your neighbourhood because of your incredible support! The demand for food and programs for young people increases as the school bell lets kids out for the summer – but your support makes a difference all year long!
Ensure a hunger free summer for thousands in our city that rely on our services. As the need for summer meals increases — you can make a difference.
