Friends of the Centre Recognition
The John McGivney Children's Centre 'Friends of the Centre' is an award initiated in June 2005 and presented annually by the Board of Directors at the Annual General Meeting, to recognize outstanding contributions by individuals and corporations that support the work of the John McGivney Children's Centre and thereby positively impacting the quality of life for children and youth with special needs and their families.
Rotary Club of Windsor (1918)
Posted February 21, 2013
Mr. Lex McCrindel accepted the award on behalf of Rotary Club of Windsor (1918). For over forty years the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) has been actively involved with our Centre.  In November of 1965 the Club commenced planning under the leadership of Rotarian Mr. John McGivney for a new facility providing integrated services for children with disabilities.  The Children’s Rehabilitation Centre of Essex County opened its doors on June 26th, 1978.  The Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) has actively supported our programs, services and equipment needs over the years to ensure that no child goes without service. Again, in 2007 they have come through at a pivotal time of need as the Centre now embarks on a long awaiting building expansion. We must raise $6 million locally to augment the $8 million provided by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services for our expanded facility. The Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) has committed to be our lead donor with a generous pledge of $1 million to our capital fundraising campaign.
