We are a group of parents, teachers, students and community members at Regal Road Junior Public School in Toronto’s downtown west end. We have come together to privately sponsor a refugee family to come to Canada. Our goal is to raise $35 000 by the end of March 2016 and we plan to welcome a family to our community as soon as possible after that. We are doing this as part of the 1000 Schools Challenge. We think our school is an ideal community hub through which to offer resettlement support to a family. It is large and diverse and members of our community can offer a wide range of support and social networks to the family once they arrive in Toronto. We also see this as an opportunity to teach our children about the importance of caring for the world around them. That’s why we will be providing opportunities for the entire school community to get involved in the fundraising and sponsorship process. We know we will all learn a lot about the causes of displacement and the process of resettlement. Thanks in advance for your support. We can’t wait to welcome a new family into the Regal Road School community.
Please consider helping us make a difference in the lives of refugees who have been through so much, and give them hope for a better life in Canada. Your donation will help provide housing, food, clothing and other essentials of daily life.
