For our inaugural year, our committee chose three local charities
Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation
Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation - Is an independent, community-based and volunteer-led registered charity that raises funds to purchase state-of-the-art equipment, support local cancer research, and provide short-term assistance to cancer patients experiencing financial need. All funds raised remain in our community.

This donation was made in memory of our dear colleague, John Wessel who passed away in 2018.
VON SMART In-Home
VON SMART In-Home (Seniors Maintaining Active Roles Together)

Fight Like Mason Foundation
