fundraisevolunteerCharities

 Charitable activities are on-going in Heritage Village, informally by small groups or individuals, or as annual Village events. 

In 2009 the Brock University Niagara Community Observatory issued a report showing that 70% of Niagara seniors donate time or money. Some 20% of seniors’ after-tax income is donated to charities, compared to 7% for younger people.  About 40% of Niagara seniors volunteer hundreds of thousands of hours annually to non-profit organizations.  So do your part!

Heart & Stroke Foundation

Each year some two dozen volunteers canvas the Village and raise several thousand dollars.

Grandmothers to Grandmothers

This group of volunteers raises funds for the Stepen Lewis Foundation to assist children in Africa who lost their parents to AIDS.  Their activities include raffles and hosting a Christmas Tea.

Lincoln Memorial Hospital  (WLMH Foundation)

Heritage Village has been recognized in the past as a significant contributor at their Philanthropy Celebrations.  Our collective efforts by way of silent auctions, fall bazaars, craft sales and cook book sales has raised tens of thousands of dollars.  Plans are progressing for a new hospital double the current size, expanded from plans submitted to the Ontario Government a decade ago.  New equipment is planned (bone densitometry, CT scanner).  Since equipment is not supplied by the Ontario government, there is much need for new fundraising.

Travel Bottles:  Women's Shelter & Out of the Cold

Barbara Smith has been gathering donations of hotel shampoos, lotions and small soaps.  On your next trip, gather up what you've paid for but not used.

 Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) 

Villagers participate at the annual Charity BBQ Day in early May, located at the M&M Meats store in Beamsville.

 To join these Village volunteer groups, or others, get current contact information from the Heritage Club office.
