Message From The CEO

Our vision at SCHC is to ignite the strength of community. Over the past year, we had so many opportunities to host and participate in local community events. These opportunities to engage with our Scarborough residents inspire our vision, because we see the strength in the community, and we experience the impact that is made collectively.

One example of this impact is the results of our Board of Directors’ Summer Food Drive. Each summer we see a decrease in food bank donations, while the needs persist, especially as children are home from school and don’t have access to the various food programs available through school boards and before and after school programs.

Our Board of Directors stepped up and responded to our call for action. Many hosted food drives in their communities, and at their work, they spearheaded donation campaigns and lent a helping hand at the food bank. They ignited the strength of community to address this gap and help fill the food bank shelves, so a big thank you to them for their leadership in addressing food security for Scarborough residents!

I encourage us all to continue to connect with our community, our neighbours, our faith groups, and our charities. Continue to be a flame that sparks the health and wellness of others and in return, you will feed your own soul and well-being.

Stay safe,
