Swing into Spring Carnival: Children’s Youth Philanthropy Group supporting CHF

Children’s Youth Philanthropy Group’s Swing into Spring Carnival event happening at Wilfrid Jury Public School on May the 4th. There will be characters visiting from a galaxy far, far, away (be sure to get a photo with your favourite!), carnival food available for purchase, an auction, a performance from Dreams Come True, and so much more!
This year, our YPG members have chosen to raise funds to support the MegaPod in the SMILE Room (sensory room) at Children’s Hospital, LHSC. This room offers a therapeutic space for children and adults with autism and other special needs. Due to the popularity of the space, the MegaPod needs to be replaced, and with your support, we can raise the necessary funds to do just that!
