100 Days of Giving

The 100 days of giving was an opportunity given to us by a community member who was driven to illuminate the community fellowship. During the campaign 100 individuals around the community had the opportunity to donate $100 to whatever charity they desired. Through this the community opened up, with matching donations and awareness created the campaign was incredibly rewarding for many people in the community.

 

Test Drive Events 2017

Each year we partner with school and community projects to help fundraise for a variety of efforts. 2017 we supported College Heights and Kelly Road students with raising money for their graduation celebrations. The Ghana school project which is run by an outstanding group of Canadians helping to build a school in Ghana Africa, so far they have completed one stage and have provided students with a suitable structure to learn in as well as toilets. They are now raising money to build more class rooms for older students so school will continue to be a priority to the Ghana community. The library in support of raising funds for their outreach vehicle, and the local 4H group who help teach children about responsibility while taking care and showing a range of animals from chickens and rabbits to horses and cows.  During the test drive event supporters can come test drive a Ford vehicle and for each Ford test driven, Ford Canada will donate $20 up to $6,000 per event.
