Starting on April 29, 2023, Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities will be auctioning off a number of fun and unique items to bid on to raise money for our organization – and the more items we have the more money we can raise, so we’re asking for your help. This event will be hosted online via BiddingForGood.com (same as last year). Last year was our first ever time launching this auction and we were featured in the Toronto Star.

At Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities (SCHC), we have been providing health and community programs and services in Scarborough for almost 45 years. Last year alone, we totaled over 10,000 service provider interactions. Our health programs support individuals and their families when dealing with illness, chronic disease, or facing the end of their life. Our community programs help the most vulnerable experiencing health inequities in Scarborough. Like our Food and Furniture Banks, Active Living Centre, Meals on Wheels, Housing Support, and other Community Engagement services that provide basic necessities and encourage social interaction for vulnerable seniors, youth, and newcomers. SCHC has 42 programs over 10 sites and continues to grow.
However, the majority of our government funding is specific to only some of our programs and services. With no cost of living increases for several years, we are continually challenged to cover basic overhead and infrastructure costs that support programs and services developed for the mental, social, and holistic health needs of our community. And the pandemic has made the need for these supports even greater.
This is why Scarborough Love Auction hopes to raise $20,000 for three priority program areas: Seniors, Hospice/Palliative, and Youth, to help provide direct community support.
Rest assured this platform is encrypted and secure through STRIPE processing and credit card information is not shared with SCHC. We respect everyone’s privacy and confidentiality and protect any contact information within the donor management system at SCHC.
Give a little and get a lot in return.
Whether you have 1 item or 100 items to contribute, your participation is an invaluable part of our fundraising efforts. By donating an item or service, you’ll be helping to raise money for our organization, and you’ll receive a mention on our site that can link back to your own web page. We are looking for tickets, gift cards, gift baskets, and new products as these will help attract more bidders.
