You can participate in a charity golf tournament to raise funds for the Milton Community Resource Center (MCRC) empowerment programs.
The first annual MCRC’on the green‘ is scheduled for next month. Community Engagement and Partnerships Manager Ashley McTavish says it will be a great day.
She adds that attendees will be able to enjoy live music from the band’Chopped liver‘ before and after setting foot on the green.
The event is designed as a way to raise funds for their empowerment programs. These programs are high quality, inclusive, accessible and aim to address the negative impact of poverty and inequality. Empowerment programs include:
- Infant food bank – Provide families with a monthly supply of baby essentials such as diapers, formula, baby food and cereal.
- currently provides essentials to over 95 families and over 115 babies each month
- She can! Program – Girl-centered programs to foster strength, leadership and resilience through hands-on activities and stimulating discussions.
- In 2021, over 300 girls participated in programs designed to empower and uplift girls in our community.
- Menstrual Poverty Initiative – Aims to improve the mental and physical health of all women by providing menstrual products such as panty liners, tampons, sanitary napkins and washable products.
- Currently assists over 50 menstruating women every month with a healthy period.
Their ultimate goal is to raise $25,000, which will allow them to purchase the items required for empowerment programs for up to four months. McTavish says community support is what keeps them going.
