PCC’s broad range of mental health programs for children, youth and their families would not be possible without generous support from hundreds of funders, donors and volunteers. Their contributions enable PCC to serve 3,700 children each year with more than 5,700 high-quality services. Read on to learn about the success of our 6th Annual Cosmic Bowl fundraising event and grants from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, RBC Foundation, the Pendle Fund at the Community Foundation of Mississauga, and Toronto Star Fresh Air Fund.
6th ANNUAL COSMIC BOWL
A huge thank-you goes out to our caring community of bowlers, pledgers, sponsors and donors, who raised over $34,000 at our Sixth Annual Cosmic Bowl on May 27th at Classic Bowl in Mississauga. In the photo above are PCC's Vice-President Roman Boychuck, a Staff Superintendent at Peel Regional Police (PRP), with the PRP Cosmic Bowl team.
OTF GRANT ENABLES PCC TO EXPAND VOLUNTEER SERVICES
Thanks to a three-year grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) totalling $225,000, PCC has been able to increase our volunteer recruitment and training, expand our volunteer services, and better integrate our volunteer programs into PCC’s clinical service system.
More than 100 specially trained volunteers generously support our services each year. See below for information on how to become a volunteer at PCC and our range of volunteer service options.
RBC MAKES LEADERSHIP GIFT TO GROUP SERVICES
The RBC Foundation has generously donated $40,000 to our Group Services program as part of RBC’s Children’s Mental Health Initiative. We are proud of the long-term relationship that we enjoy with the RBC Foundation and RBC Royal Bank, which have donated over $150,000 to PCC programs over the past eight years.
THE PENDLE FUND AT THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF MISSISSAUGA SUPPORTS WESTACRES SUMMER CAMP
We would also like to thank the Pendle Fund at the Community Foundation of Mississauga, which has generously donated $20,000 for our Westacres Day Treatment Summer Camp this year. The camp enables children ages 6-12 with serious mental health challenges to receive therapeutic treatment while enjoying a variety of summer activities.
TORONTO STAR FRESH AIR FUND – SUPPORTING DAY TREATMENT CAMP FOR 12 YEARS
The Toronto Star Fresh Air Fund has decided yet again to generously support our Day Treatment camps. The fund’s long-time support has enabled PCC to provide continuity of service for children and youth who could otherwise lose their treatment gains over the summer school break. The campers also enjoy social and recreational opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable to them.
