Thank you to all of our generous sponsors & riders for supporting the 6th Annual Kanter for Kids. It was a beautiful day on the trails through Hoards Station, but we had over 50 riders participate. We managed to raise $7,500 for children and youth in Hastings County. This ride was also in support of Child Abuse Prevention Month happening throughout October. For all who came in purple, including our four legged friends, you looked amazing!

Friday, October 5th The Children’s Foundation with partner Trenton Golden Hawks Hockey Club launched the beginning of the 2018/2019 Cheering for Children Program.
There was a sea of purple in the crowd in support of Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Children’s Foundation auctioned off the “game-worn” purple jersey’s with funds being directed to Child Abuse Prevention Month.
This year, for every goal scored $21.00 will be donated! We have another year of wonderful sponsors, who with this program are going to help make a difference for children and youth in Hastings County.
We look forward to another year & will keep you updated mid-season on the amount raised!
GO HAWKS GO!
As our 2018 Child Abuse Prevention Month is in full swing we want to say THANK YOU to each and every one of you who are supporting this campaign throughout the month of October.
We are very excited about the participation throughout our communities in Hastings, Northumberland and Prince Edward Counties and hope to see all of you GO PURPLE on October 24th this year.
Together we are #Helpingonechildatatime #ibreakthesilence
On Saturday September 15th family and colleagues gathered at Highland Shores Children’s Aid to remember Ken Sykes and raised funds for The Children’s Foundation Reach for Success Bursary Awards Program.
Ken Sykes was an active member of The Children’s Foundation Board of Directors for seven (7) years. Ken was a true champion for children and youth-in-care and was instrumental in establishing our Reach for Success Bursary Program.
This year, The Children’s Foundation wanted to do something special to mark the goal of raising over $100,000 for the Reach for Success Bursary Program. A stone was created for the commemorative Rock Garden out front of the TCF office. Another new edition to this year’s event, a Plaque was given to the Top Fundraising firm, who will for a whole year be given bragging rights!
The Children’s Foundation (TCF) has been serving children and youth in Hastings County since 1991, and, in 2015, expanded to include Northumberland & Prince Edward Counties. The Children’s Foundation is an autonomous organization governed by its own Board of Directors and is the charitable arm of Highland Shores Children’s Aid (HSCA). Additionally, TCF offers programs for families who are at risk with no affiliation to HSCA. Programs and services aim to educate and inspire members of the communities they serve and to effect change that bring people and financial resources together to improve the quality of life for at risk children and youth.
If you would like to donate or for more information on our Reach For Success Bursary program, please call us: 613.962.9292
It’s very easy….your company pledges a donation for every goal the Trenton Golden Hawks score during the regular season and we’ll take care of the rest! Last year the Hawks scored 167 goals! ($1 per goal pledge = $167 donation).
In return for your pledge, you will receive the following recognition:
• Your name will be prominently displayed in the Duncan McDonald Memorial Community Garden Arena
• 2 Complimentary tickets for the banner unveil on Friday, October 5th 2018
• Your company logo will be displayed on TCF website and recognized on TCF Facebook page
One of the programs The Children’s Foundation funds is Playing for Keeps. When Children participate in recreational or cultural activities, they are not only learning a specific ability; they are developing positive interactive social skills that will last a lifetime. The funds raised during 2016/2017 benefited over 400 children in our community.
Our most sincere thanks to our sponsors for their investment and their commitment to the children and youth in our community! We hope you will join us again this Hockey Season!
