Unfortunately with the concerns around the COVID-19 virus we are cancelling our Easter Egg Hunt. We feel that this is in the best interest of all particpants and organizers. We look forward to seeing you next year.

Help us with your Donation!

Our community is a vibrant one and we firmly believe that by making the lives of children better - our community becomes better. We are very active in our community. Programs such as Cycle into the Future, the summer reading program at St. Jacobs Library, Woolwich Counselling antibullying programs at St. Jacobs Public School, Neonatal Intensive Care Program for Grand River Hospital, Grand River Teddy Bear Program all benefit from our efforts in fundraising. There is lots more for us to do, but we need your help.

If you are able, we would appreciate any donation that you can make toward our programming for the youth in our community of St. Jacobs. Donations can be made through PayPal with the button below, or you can always mail us at Box 542, St. Jacobs, ON, N0B 2N0.
