Community Living Essex County joined the Giving Tuesday movement once again this year. It was a movement on a national scale where non-profit charitable organizations across the country banded together to kick off the giving season while spreading awareness for their cause. This is the third time this movement has taken place in Canada, and Community Living Essex County’s second time participating in it.
CLEC is pleased to share that with the help of many generous supporters in the community, we received an amazing $2,000 in online and text donations during our giving Tuesday Campaign starting on Giving Tuesday itself (December 1st) and running up to December 24th.
Corporate partners Hometown Family Pharmacy of Harrow agreed to generously match each donation – bringing the grand total to $4,000! All proceeds from this online venture will directly support people with an intellectual disability and their families across Essex County.
Highlights from the campaign can be viewed on the CLEC Facebook and Twitter pages.
“Community Living Essex County would like to say thank you to everyone who participated in our campaign,” commented Nancy Wallace-Gero, Executive Director. “Whether it was by donating, sharing posts from our social media sites, or simply by spreading the word – every contribution towards this campaign was sincerely appreciated,” adds Wallace-Gero.
A special thank you to Hometown Family Pharmacy for being incredible supporters of the work being done by Community Living Essex County.
