The Granary is teaming up with Connections to help support this important Lanark County Program that helps at-risk families raise healthy children.
Connections is a community-based project whose goal is to support families in the healthy growth and development of young children through cooperative efforts involving families, services, and communities. This is accomplished by:
- Operating several community programs: Birth Companion, Good Food for a Healthy Baby, Home Visiting and Parent & Children’s Groups.
- Helping parents improve their capacity to raise healthy children.
- Increasing the participation of vulnerable families in the community.
- Promoting partnerships and collaboration among service providers to improve access and quality of service to vulnerable families.
We at The Granary, like at Connections, believe in the right of all people to have conditions and resources for good health, including peace, shelter, education, food, income, access to health care, a stable ecosystem, sustainable resources, social justice, equity and social inclusion. We would like to help them achieve their goals and missions.
For the month of May, we will be asking our customers to donate to this local worthy cause. All proceeds stay in our community. We are also embarking on a longer fundraiser with our Supplier Assured Naturals.
Assured Naturals has agreed to donate $1.00 from the sale of the following products to Connections. Customers get to purchase top quality effective products while supporting an important, underfunded community program.
Make sure to get your ticket for the upcoming fundraiser event with Arlene Quinn. Happening Friday, June 14th at The Town Hall. Tickets and more information are available in store.
