The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk is returning to the Caledonia fair. The 137th Annual Caledonia Fair runs from Thursday, October 1 to Sunday, October 4th, 2009. This year’s theme is, “A Country Christmas”.
The CRD Department will be attending the event to awareness for Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Month; Raise money for the Fresh Air Fund Fund; Recuitment of Foster Homes and Adoptive Homes.
Child Abuse Prevention Month reminds all of us that reporting suspected child abuse or neglect is everyone’s responsibility.
Join us at our outdoor tent where we will be distributing buttons, bracelets and ribbons for Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Month. We will be featuring a basketball toss game where you can win prizes.
Last Year, Ontario Children’s Aid Societies investigated 77, 089 referrals concerning the safety and well-being of children and youth at risk of abuse and harm. 1,824 referrals were received by The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk.
Child abuse and neglect are societal and family issues. The goal of the Child Abuse Prevention Campaign in October is to raise awareness that public education and prevention are the best ways to end the neglect and abuse of children. It serves as a reminder to all of us that reporting suspected child abuse and neglect is everyone’s responsibility.
Visit us at the Caledonia Fair (October 1 – 4, 2009) and at the Norfolk County Fair (October 6 – 12, 2009) where we will be distributing free wrist bands and buttons to raise awareness and provide information about child abuse and neglect.
The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk will also be fundraising for the Fresh Air Fund and providing information about adoption and fostering at our exhibit booth.
