Currency For Kids: your foreign currency can help kids in need

Currency for Kids ‘Spends’ The Time to Ensure Our Local Community is Thriving!

The Children’s Foundation has a new way of fundraising. Currency for Kids! Through Currency for Kids, The Children’s Foundation will accept all currency from anywhere in the world. Through this program metal (from coins) and paper (from banknotes) would be recycled and used to support our community.

“Spring is around the corner, and so is spring cleaning!

It’s the perfect time to bring in any foreign currency that you find while doing your clean-up! Every coin or bill received will help kids in our community”, says Kim Henry, Executive Director.

By donating something that has little to no value to the TCF Currency for Kids, you will be helping make a difference in a child’s life.

Donations can be mailed or dropped off at The Children’s Foundation office or at one of our community locations. No worries about using the postal system. The currency has no value at this time, the value is only realized after it is repatriated. For larger quantities, donors can contact the TCF office, or a staff member or volunteer can do pick-ups of larger donations. The issuing of Charitable Tax Receipts could be provided upon request if they meet the charity’s receipt issuing policy.

Because of you, the children and youth in our community get to have ‘priceless’ experiences! Please visit our website www.thechildrensfoundation.ca to learn more about The Children Foundation.

Jump Into Spring Pajama ‘Party’

The Children’s Foundations’ First Jump into Spring Pajama ‘Party’

With February being the gloomiest month of the year, The Children’s Foundation wanted to put a little ‘Spring’ in your step! Come join us for our first Jump into Spring Pajama Party where you can have fun picking out some new pajamas for your children!

The Jump into Spring Pajama Party will be held at The Children’s Foundation at 363 Dundas St. W in Belleville ON. on March 10th from 12 pm- 4 pm, and March 11th from 8 am- 4 pm. Bring your bag and your little ones to pick out some of their own pajamas free of charge!

If you are interested in any pajamas but are unable to join us on those days, send an email and we can make other arrangements!

“This previous year has been difficult for a lot of families, financially and mentally. On top, this time of the year is traditionally a gloomy time. We wanted to create a little ‘Spring’ and sunshine for all the families in our local communities. We want to welcome everyone to share in the sunshine for our first Jump into Spring Pajama Party and get out of the house and allow the little ones a bit of freedom in picking out their own new PJs!”, says Kim Henry, Executive Director.

Because of you, and the giving community that we all live in, we are able to provide small bits of sunshine and activities like this to the children, youth, and families in our local communities! Please visit our website www.thechildrensfoundation.ca to learn more about The Children Foundation.
