October is designated Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Month. To help raise awareness of the importance of this month, The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand & Norfolk is participating in a province wide Purple Ribbon Campaign.
During the month of October, we will be distributing Purple Ribbons in an effort to raise awareness of the prevention of child abuse and neglect and to encourage citizens in our communities to become involved in endeavours to end child abuse and neglect. This is an opportunity for the communities we serve to recognize the value of our children and the importance of childhood.
If you have concerns about the safety of a child, please call 1-888-CAS-KIDS or 1-888-227-5437.
Remembering Dustin Korey Glass:
Dustin was a youth on Extended Care and Maintenance who passed away in May, 2009 as the result of a tragic car accident. He was eighteen years old.
Dustin faced many struggles in his young life which he began to overcome when he enrolled in the General Education Development program at Fanshawe College.
At the request of Dustin’s family, The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk has established the “Dustin Glass Memorial Bursary” to honour Dustin’s memory.
This award is granted to five youth in care who are living independently and have graduated from high school.
The awards will be presented at The Children’s Aid Society’s Annual General Meeting each year beginning in 2010.
If you wish to make a donation please contact the Society at (519) 587-5437 or toll free at 1-888-CAS-KIDS (227-5437).
