Elexicon Energy has pledged a multi-year commitment to Grandview Kids via its Foundation to support children and youth in Durham Region with physical, communication and developmental needs. This partnership will help more kids and youth with disabilities live life to their full potential.
“At Elexicon Energy, we believe our organization has a key role to play in empowering our customers, employees and communities during this complex and difficult time,” says Lesley Gallinger, President and CEO, Elexicon Energy. “Our partnership with Grandview Kids is critical to the future well-being of the communities across our service territory that have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic.”
Elexicon Energy’s multi-year commitment will help to provide life-changing services, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, behavioural supports and paediatrics. It will also help families address speech language and audiology concerns, and support their well-being through therapeutic recreation and social work. Demand for these services in Durham Region currently exceeds 19,000 children and youth.
Community support, like what is being received from Elexicon Energy, is even more important now, given how the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected charity fundraising. By choosing to give local, Elexicon Energy is ensuring that Grandview Kids is better prepared to help local kids grow and thrive.
“It is our absolute pleasure to be able to partner with Elexicon Energy to help kids and youth in our community to live their best life,” says Brigitte Tschinkel, Executive Director at Grandview Kids Foundation. “So much will be possible for these clients because of Elexicon’s help.”
