About the Program
The Dufferin Concrete Ready-Mix Drum Program was launched in 2007 in order to raise money for kids in a number of regions throughout Ontario. In 2012, the program came to Durham Region to support the work of Grandview Children’s Centre. Participants in the program sponsor the drum and have their names and logos on two trucks for one year. One truck is based at Dufferin Concrete’s Bowmanville location and the other at its Whitby location. The trucks are working trucks and travel the roads of Durham Region and beyond for approximately 250 days per year. Sponsored trucks will begin rolling through Durham Region and beyond in early October 2017 and will continue throughout the year. In addition to our sincere gratitude for your $2,500 sponsorship of this program, those participating will receive:
- A “thank you” presence on the GrandviewKids.ca website with a shout-out on social media (i.e. Facebook, Twitter) at a mutually agreed upon time during the year;
- The use of one of the Dufferin Concrete advertising trucks at a company event during the year; and
- Acknowledgement in one issue of Grandview’s e-Newsletter during the year.
Grandview Children’s Centre is an independently operated not-for-profit organization. It is the only children’s treatment centre in Durham Region with paediatric experts providing specialized programs, outpatient clinical treatment, and support to thousands of children and youth (from birth to age 19) with special needs and their families. All of the money raised by this program goes directly to provide Grandview Kids with the specialized therapy services they need. Currently, Grandview serves close to 6,000 kids per year with almost 3,000 more waiting to access services. Funds generated by this program will help kids walk, talk and achieve their personal best. From Bryan Yetman, Chair of Grandview Children’s Centre Foundation Board of Directors; “Grandview is extremely grateful to Dufferin Concrete and the participating sponsors for this incredibly unique program that benefits all of Grandview Kids and services. A first step, a big smile, a first word spoken , a school or camp experience they would have otherwise not had – these are just a few of the ‘firsts’ that are made possible by the generosity of donors like you. Thank you!” To participate in the Dufferin Concrete Ready-Mix Drum Sponsorship Program, please contact: Joe Thompson at 905-261-0655 Thank you … for inspiring possibilities for children and youth with special needs in Durham Region.
