We're participating in #GivingTuesday!
Date Posted: Tuesday, November 29, 2016

​What is #GivingTuesday? After #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday kick off the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday kicks off the giving season! This year, we're part of the #GivingTuesday Canada South Movement in Windsor-Essex #YQGGives. By participating in this day, we are kicking off our year-end giving campaign to raise awareness about and funds for our playground project: Play McGivney!
What is Play McGivney? We're redeveloping our outdoor side yard into a place where children and youth with special needs, their families, their friends and the community will play, learn and grow together outdoors in an accessible and welcoming environment.  Our accessible playground and nature experience will provide both play and therapeutic benefits.
Inclusion and accessibility are the main goals of our design received in-kind from Playworld. Play McGivney is designed in a way that children of all abilities will truly be able to enjoy their experience together
In order to build a space that fulfills the size and scope of this unique, one-of-a kind design, we need your help! Our dream is to create a space where all our community’s children  can play, learn and enjoy outdoor adventures together, and your donation can help make our dream a reality.
Are you interested in being a part of Play McGivney? This is your chance to be a part of creating a space where children and youth with special needs, their families, their friends and our community will be able to socialize, interact and play together in a fully accessible and inclusive outdoor environment that celebrates the diversity of our community and promotes skill development for those of all abilities.

Donate to Play McGivney today! (Select #5 Gardens & Playground)
Construction of Play McGivney begins in the Spring of 2017. Thank you for your support.
