In Honour of the Ones We Love - Friends of the Centre
Posted June 29, 2017
In Honour of the Ones We Love was recognized at our June 13, 2017 Annual General Meeting for their support of our Play McGivney accessible playground project. The In Honour of the Ones We Love team has been instrumental in making the dream of an accessible playground at JMCC a reality.   Marking 20 years of improving the lives of those in our community, In Honour of the Ones We Love was founded by Anita Imperioli and her family, and quickly became one of this region's most effective agents of change.  Anita and Teresa Silvestri attended the meeting to accept the Friends of the Centre Award.  We are forever grateful to In Honour of the Ones We Love for their financial support, and equally important;  their encouragment of others to support this very worth endeavor. In Honour of the Ones We Love is truly a Friend of the Centre!

Posted June 29, 2017
We were very pleased to welcome Scott Bachly, Chair of the Smilezone Foundation, back to the John McGivney Children’s Centre to accept the Friends of the Centre Award at our Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, June 13, 2017.   Thanks to the members of the Smilezone Foundation, their generosity and hard work, our Centre has a bright and beautiful new look!  From the new paint, to the colourful murals to the awesome GestureTek projector and fish tank in the waiting room, JMCCs new Smilezones are putting smiles on the faces of our kids and families on a daily basis. It helps families feel welcome and comfortable when they come into our Centre. And this is exactly how we want them to feel. Thank you to the Smilezone Foundation – we couldn’t be more proud to call you a Friend of the John McGivney Children’s Centre.
 
Windsor Spitfires Foundation - Friend of the Centre
Posted June 29, 2017
The John McGivney Children’s Centre is extremely grateful for the long-time support of the Windsor Spitfires Foundation. We were honoured to present them our Friends of the Centre Award at our Annual General Meeting that was held at the Centre on Tuesday, June 13, 2017.  Our kids and families have benefitted by attending games to cheer on their beloved Spits and the Centre has benefitted greatly from the generosity of this wonderful organization over the years.  This year, thanks to the Spitfires’ wonderful partnership with the Smilezone Foundation, JMCC has been transformed into a brighter, more welcoming and more child and family friendly space. We are so proud to be a Legacy Project of MasterCard Memorial Cup 2017.  Everyone enjoys the bright colours, the amazing murals and the jerseys signed by the 2017 Memorial Cup Champions: The Windsor Spitfires!! All the transformed spaces in our Centre will be enjoyed by generations of JMCC families. Thank you to the Windsor Spitfires Foundation! We are so honoured and happy to have the Windsor Spitfires as a Friend of the John McGivney Children’s Centre.
