Community Round Up

Community Round Up – April 8, 2021

This weekly round-up shares the latest from Innisfil Community Foundation (ICF), updates from our grantees, and news from across our community.

The latest from ICF

  • We’re excited to share that ICF, the Innisfil ideaLAB & Library, and Gilda’s Club of Simcoe Muskoka have come together to support some of our youngest citizens. On Saturday, April 17 at 2:00 p.m., Innisfil families are welcome to join Gilda’s Club’s free, virtual “Worry Creatures in the Community” workshop – complete with an interactive worry creature kit. Hosted by Certified Child Life Specialist, Jocelyn Leworthy, the workshop helps validate children’s worries and teaches them coping strategies – like worry creatures – which help children express and manage heavy feelings. Families can register for the workshop online and Library staff will follow up to arrange worry creature kit pick-up via curbside service. This project was funded by ICF through the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund.

Grantee Updates

  • There’s still time to register for Matthews House Hospice’s Hike, Bike & Bark Event. Taking place on Sunday, May 2nd, the event will help Matthews House offer caring, compassionate support to individuals and caregivers in our community.

  • Cook for a cause, in support of patient care at Royal Victoria Hospital and the IOOF Recreation Therapy Program. For a minimum of a $10 donation, you’ll receive an electronic copy of RVH’s “Ultimate Recipe Collection”.
