For many Caledon children, the first day of school is filled with joy, excitement, and an eagerness to learn and grow. However, for hundreds of kids like Ava, their first day is overshadowed by worry and hunger.
Ava is a bright-eyed 10-year-old with big dreams of becoming a teacher one day. Ava's family relies on Kidz in Caledon for nourishing meals and essential school supplies. Despite her mom working two jobs, making ends meet is still challenging. Thanks to your generosity last year, Ava received a back-to-school kit and healthy nourishment, fueling her aspirations and confidence. She returned to school ready to take on the world.
You have the power to make a difference! Without your help, hundreds of Caledon children would not have back-to-school essentials, be able to participate in organized sports, and will even go hungry. They won't have the chance to look forward with joyful anticipation to a new school year, make friends, build confidence, and create lasting memories that contribute to their growth into healthy adults.
Today, your generosity will help Ava and over 400 other Caledon children like her pursue their dreams with enthusiasm and a full tummy.
