Update from the Wilkinson-St. David Sponsorship Group
Exciting news!  The family of six the group is sponsoring will arrive in Toronto on September 21, 2016. Thank you to all of those who generously donated money and other gifts in kind to help prepare for the family's arrival.

Volunteers are still needed to provide direct settlement support; people with some daytime availability in particular. A police clearance record and a two-hour AURA training are requirements for direct involvement with the family. You can check the AURA website for the next available training.  

Please email the sponsorship group if you are interested, and check their website for updates.
