A community that cares

Don Hutchinson from Simcoe recently celebrated his milestone 50th birthday with a party. After discussions with his wife Kathie, the couple asked party guests to bring a donation of Christmas toys in place of birthday presents.

“I have everything I need, so Kathie and I thought it would be a good idea to get everyone to bring a donation to give to children in need at Christmas,” reported Mr. Hutchinson.

The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk would like to extend our thanks to Don and Kathie for donating dozens of toys to the Society which will be used to help disadvantaged children in care and from the community.

The Hutchinson’s truly belong to a community that nurtures the lives and dreams of children. If you are interested in helping out this Christmas or at other times of the year please contact us at 1-888-CAS-KIDS or (519) 587-5437.

The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk is working hard to improve the lives and dreams of children and youth in our communities this Christmas and throughout the year.

Through a new partnership with Walmart we have created the Little Dreams, Big Dreams Angel Tree program which would provide Christmas gifts to children and youth in care as well as disadvantaged children and youth in our communities.

As a result of this program and others offered by the Society, you can belong to a community that cares about the well-being of children.

Helping is easy. Just visit the Walmart store in Simcoe, take a tag from the Angel Tree inside the front entrance and purchase a gift in the store.

Please contact us if you wish to help out children or families this Christmas or year round at 1-888-227-5437 or locally at 519-587-5437.


Norfolk OPP adopt CAS families

The Norfolk County detachment of the OPP, once again joined the Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk to sponsor needy families and children this past holiday season.

On Monday December 22nd, 2008 the Norfolk County OPP presented gifts and food donations to Haldimand and Norfolk Children’s Aid Society to hand to sponsored families. The donations were collected and donated by police officers and their families.

For the past several years the Norfolk County detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police have donated gifts to children and families in need, involved with the Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk. Mark Foster from Norfolk OPP reported that, “every child should be able to open a gift on Christmas morning.” Through the generous donations of the O.P.P. many children and families were able to have a special Christmas in 2008.

The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk extends our gratitude and appreciation for Norfolk O.P.P.’s contributions and dedication to children and families in our community, not only at Christmas but all year round.
