Deck the halls with Holiday Hearts for Kuddles for Kids, at one of Port Credit’s hot spots – Roc N’ Docs – on Saturday, December 8th, 2018 with 100% of proceeds going to Interim Place Shelter and CJ’s SKATEPARK Special Needs Program.

Looking for the chance to get out and celebrate the festive season, Holiday Hearts (formerly known as Kuddles for Kids) is the perfect way to help two important community needs.  The jolly time starts from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with live entertainment by the Nomads and a special appearance by the uber-talented Sil Simone.

Don’t forget to extend your generosity to the Mississauga Food bank by bringing non-perishable food items.

“This is 4th year we’re inviting community friends to support kids and families during the Holiday season, it made sense to change the name from Kuddles for Kids to Holiday Hearts says Chair Penelope Mathieson.  The primary beneficiaries are  Interim Place shelter residents, as the Holiday season is a challenging time for women, moms, and their children who are displaced having fled from violence. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $50.00 for each of the 60 shelter residents for warm winter clothing, toys and games as well as necessities for the women and moms.”

We’re very pleased to welcome to Mississauga CJ’s SKATEPARK – the largest, not-for-profit, indoor air conditioned skatepark in the world and include as a beneficiary.  CJ’s SKATEPARK’s mission is to engage and empower all children in the community, including at-risk youth and those with special needs, such as kids affected by Cancer, Autism, Down Syndrome, Deafness, Asperger’s, ADHD, OCD, LDs or any other challenge one might have.  Funds raised will support Special Needs Program and families below the poverty line.

“We proudly boast that 100% of funds raised ultimately reach end users and identified programs and not to fund administrative or ‘other’ costs.  Every dollar raised is strictly directed to the intended beneficiary,  a mandate which sets us apart” adds Mathieson.

Special thanks to sponsor and pillar in our community Royal LePage Real Estate Services Loretta Phinney Brokerage –who consistently contribute community spirit. It is warm friendships such as these which help propel our exceptional team of volunteers to accomplish such goals.”
