Message From the CEO
This can be a hard time of year for many of us, as we endure shorter, colder days of winter and miss that important Vitamin D from the sun. So it is more important than any other season to make a special effort to stay healthy, physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is a time when we need extra motivation to take a walk, spend time with family and friends and eat healthy, especially as we recover from all the holiday festivities, which we often centre around food and eating.
To help, you can always check out the various calendars on SCHC’s website, www.schcontario.ca for events and programs catering to all ages that will contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Do not forget to include a friend or neighbour to provide that extra motivation and support to stay active and engaged.
This edition of our newsletter is filled with stories of celebration and appreciation for the continued support SCHC receives, be it through our Quest event, our Ontario Trillium Grants or the relentless work of our staff to keep Scarborough residents healthy. So as the holiday season is upon us and we prepare for the start of a new year I want to extend my heartfelt warm wishes to all our staff, volunteers, clients, donors, community and partners for a healthy and happy new year and hope this holiday season is a memorable one for everyone.
As for SCHC I have only a positive outlook for the new year and the continued success of our teams as we continue to work hard to close gaps and increase access to services!
There’s still time to donate and/or sponsor a family.
