On behalf of Community Living Wallaceburg, we would like to thank the communities of Wallaceburg and Dresden for their continued support of our Box Lunch fundraiser.
This year’s fundraiser, now in its 16th year, was a great success due to everyone’s support of the initiative, with more than 550 boxed lunches being delivered to homes, businesses and organizations in Wallaceburg and Dresden.
In total, our 2016 event saw 1320 lunches delivered across Chatham-Kent and parts Lambton County, bringing our 16 year total to over 20,165 total lunches made. All proceeds from this year’s event will be used to enhance the services and supports provided to more than 400 people with intellectual and related disabilities and their families across the municipality.
While our roots are in Wallaceburg, a large number of Community Living Wallaceburg’s individual and family focused services are offered throughout the communities of Chatham-Kent and parts of Lambton County. We have been supporting individuals in the Wallaceburg and Dresden area since 1956 and will continue to respond to families requests in ways that represent their wishes and preferences.
I invite you to learn more about Community Living Wallaceburg by visiting our website, our social media pages or by contacting us directly. We look forward to Chatham’s continued involvement and thank you for supporting our vision of People Participating Proudly!
