October 27th is Dress Purple Day

Every October, Children’s Aid Societies across Ontario raise awareness about the important role that individuals and communities play in supporting vulnerable children, youth and families through the Dress Purple Day campaign. This year, the campaign is more important than ever, as the pandemic has created additional stressors for families and, in some cases, has increased risk for the well-being and safety of vulnerable children and youth. This year, Dress Purple Day will take place Tuesday, October 27, 2020.

It is important to remember that we all have a role to play in keeping children and youth in our communities safe. If you have a concern for the safety or well-being of a child or youth or know a family in need of support, you can reach us 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 905.333.4441 or 866.607.5437.

What can you do? Help us to spread this message! The Halton Children’s Aid Society is inviting you to wear something purple on October 27th to show children, youth and families that you are #HereToHelpON! Create a video, post a picture or join the conversation online at #DressPurpleDay2020 and #IDressPurpleBecause to show that you are part of the community that cares for children, youth, and families.
