Toys being collected in Wallaceburg for Positivity Day

As part of the ’12 Days of Positivity’ in Chatham-Kent, a Wallaceburg woman is hoping to help some local children in need.

Krystal Gyuricza told the Sydenham Current she is collecting new stuffed animals and single toys, like Barbie dolls and action figures.

Gyuricza said she plans to distribute the toys between the Chatham-Kent Police Service, Chatham-Kent Fire & Emergency Services and Chatham-Kent EMS.

“So when they encounter a child during a stressful time, they have something to help comfort them,” Gyuricza said.

“I’ll even accept money donations… so I will go to our local Walmart and buy what toys I can, trying to help do my part in this ’12 Days of Positvity’.”

Gyuricza said on September 13, Positivity Day, she will be set up at the old Sobeys parking lot on McNaughton Avenue in Wallaceburg between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. and again between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.

“If anyone would like for me to pick up before, just email me krystalg26@hotmail.com,” Gyuricza said.

“I’ll be glad to make arrangements for pick up. Also, the Knights of Pythias is helping with Heather Blake as well. I’m just doing this to help make a child happy.”

Gyuricza can also be reached on her cell at 519-365-3506.

Blake can also be reached on her cell at 519-359-9886.

For Not-for-Profit/Charity Positivity Day Chatham-Kent Hospice shared positive messages of love and support with the community.

After collecting the messages in their reception area as well as comments from online posts, they were added as links to a paper chain which will hang in our dining room for the remainder of the 12 Days of Positivity.

At an event held on September 6 to construct the chain, Captain Positive added his link and shared his positive
energy with the volunteers and staff. He also brightened the day of a few of our residents and their
families.

“The activity ties well to other initiatives Chatham-Kent Hospice has undertaken in the past. During construction community members were encouraged to tie ribbons to the fence in remembrance of their loved ones and we continue this tradition each year at Hike for Hospice,” said Jessica Smith, Executive Director of Chatham-Kent Hospice. “It is a demonstration of our commitment to caring, compassion and connectedness.”

Local First Responders and Medical Services Celebrate Positivity Day

Recently, Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA), along with local First Responders, are positively delighted to celebrate First Responders and Healthcare Day for this year’s 12 days of Positivity in Chatham-Kent.

In celebration of the day, CKHA will welcome representatives from Chatham-Kent Police Services (CKPS), Chatham-Kent Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), Chatham-Kent Fire and Emergency Services (CKFES) and Chatham-Kent Emergency Medical Services (CK EMS) to CKHA’s Chatham Site to spread positivity during the lunch hours. First Responders will assist CKHA staff to deliver lunches to patients and visitors as they serve in Café Grand as well as patient units. The opportunity provides First Responders and the community with a wonderful opportunity for positive engagement and community building.

“As our partners in community safety and health we thank the First Responders for their ongoing commitment to Chatham-Kent,” says Lori Marshall, President & CEO, CKHA. “Celebrating First Responders and Healthcare Day is a reminder to ourselves and to the community of the important work done by CKHA and our community partners.”

This is the second annual 12 Days of Positivity, an initiative developed to spread positive thinking and acts throughout the community of Chatham-Kent. For more information on the 12 Days of Positivity, please visit www.positivitydayinck.com.
