Mindy Robineau Fund …Providing for those who cannot afford
Our Client Coordinator, Mindy Robineau, passed away at the age of 26 in the fall of 2006 after a short battle with cancer. To honour her memory, we created the Mindy Robineau Memorial Fund. This Fund is used to support meal subsidies to help us ensure nobody goes without food for lack of financial resources. This Fund needs to be replenished every year and we are always looking for contributions. Please help us if you can by making a designated contribution to the Fund!
A charitable donation receipt will be mailed to you.
Employee Matching Gifts
You might be able to make your donation go farther. Many companies encourage employees to donate to their favourite charities by matching their contribution, sometimes dollar-for-dollar or more. Please talk to your employer for more information.
In-Kind donations of products or services help us alleviate pressure on our operating budget. Additionally, we also welcome donations for door prizes or centre pieces for our annual volunteer appreciation reception.
Please call our Executive Director at 613-233-2424 to see how you can help.
