Making a Difference

How Your Donations Make a Difference

Fundraised dollars were used for various items to enhance people’s homes, such as new appliances, televisions, furniture, kitchen wares, landscaping, deck improvements, and redecorating. Renovations were completed to increase accessibility in homes and install equipment such as lift systems. Funds were also utilized to assist people with achieving life dreams by covering travel costs for vacations and purchasing exercise equipment and recreation supplies.

Also benefitting from Fundraising dollars is the LCDS Weekend Recreation Program. This program provides respite for over 40 families in Lambton County who may not otherwise receive any support. It is designed to provide a much needed break for caregivers while offering recreational and social opportunities for people in the community. The Weekend Recreation Program is funded 100% by proceeds from our Annual Charity Golf Tournament.
