October is Child Abuse Prevention Month: Your call to Children’s Aid could be the most important in a child or youth’s life

October is Child Abuse Prevention Month and this year the Halton Children’s Aid Society is joining the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies (OACAS) and Children’s Aid Societies to raise awareness about the importance of calling Children’s Aid with concerns about the safety or well-being of a child or youth. This year’s campaign specifically highlights the devastating impact neglect—which is classified as a type of abuse—can have on a child or youth. “A child who is neglected is consistently not having their vital needs met.

Sports equipment drive boosts Halton CAS, First Nations youth

The Winch Group is kicking off hockey season with its eighth Annual Community Sports Equipment Drive. The initiative, which supports First Nations youth and the Halton Children’s Aid Society, collects gently-used sporting equipment that is distributed to young people in need. Last year, items were packed into OPP trailers and transported to Wasauksing First Nation in Parry Sound, as well as Shawanaga First Nation, Henvey Inlet First Nation, and Magnetawan First Nation. Gear was also flown into Neskantaga First Nation. Organizers are looking for hockey gear, bicycles, and other athletic items. They can be dropped off at the Mainway Recreation Centre parking lot at 4015 Mainway (east of Walkers Line) in Burlington on Saturday, Nov. 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information about the equipment drive, email Lindsay Webb at l.webb@swinchgroup.com or visit www.winchgroup.com/community-outreach.
