We have an arrival date!

We have been waiting for this date for months now – the time has finally come! The family is arriving in Montreal this weekend and will be in Guelph shortly thereafter. We have kicked our preparations into high gear!

If you’re still looking for a way to support us, we have a few items left on our in-kind donation list that will go a long way to making the family feel at home in Guelph.

Thanks to all of you for your support, it’s been amazing!

Thanks to students at John McCrae Public School!

A huge thanks goes out to the John McCrae Public School community for generously purchasing candy cane grams by the hundreds in December! The Social Justice Club’s Candy Cane Fundraiser raised 665$ to help support a Syrian Refugee family starting a new life here in Guelph. Evan Stewart, a member of the Social Justice Club, presented Bridge to Guelph refugee sponsorship group representative Heather Callum with a cheque on Monday, January 18th.

The money raised by students at John McCrae will help Bridge to Guelph support the basic needs of a Syrian family of five over their first year in Guelph. The students had a chance to ask questions about the family and think about how they might like their funds to be used. Backpacks? Furniture? Food? Toys? Clothing? So many options for their money to be put to good use.

Thank you John McCrae Public School for your hard work and wonderful support!
