PORCH visit 7-13-21

Upcoming PORCH visit to Seniors on 7-13-21.


PORCH stands for providing others renewed confidence and hope. This program is part of Local Impact Alliance
Volunteers donate time and share some conversations with seniors.


The "PORCH" initiative aims to combat "an epidemic of loneliness" among seniors through weekly phone calls, home visits and community programs.
In every community there are people with lonely lives, but there are also people of good heart who want to help their neighbors in need.


PORCH has been created to bring people together.
Participation is open to everyone 18 and older, and is a wonderful opportunity to serve your community in a rewarding way.


A simple background check and training are requires for all PORCH volunteers. There is no financial obligation attached in becoming a PORCH volunteer and it is a free service to the community.
If you want to join PORCH, please fill out the application.

Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle Summer Social Recap

Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle Summer Social Recap

What a Celebration it was to Get Back to Giving Hope!!
 
 
47 Guests gathered at the Summer House venue, part of Fox Hills Golf Center. The warm summer evening was filled with wine, food and some shopping fun of which all the proceeds went into our traditional Giving Hope pass the purse collection.
Member Kay Warnke brought  a wonderful and large selection of her handmade bags, purses, aprons, and other items - and ladies were able to select their favorites and "buy" them. Through those sales and other donations Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle raised $1480.00
for The Clean Love Project. This organization provides hygiene products to women who are homeless or the victims of trafficking and other abuse. Founder Lacey Catarino and President Shelly Hein joined us and explained how and why the Clean Love Project was started, how much it has grown since its inception in 2015 and what a powerful impact it has had on the community. I believe all of us who heard their story were moved by these special, giving women and so grateful that we of Giving Hope, Women's Giving Cirle could contribute to their efforts.
 
Former Giving Hope Board Chair Joan Noricks was a special guest at our event. We were ao happy Joan joined us and were incredibly pleased to announce the new scholarship fund, organized by the CCF/LIA, named in honor of Joan's late husband Dennis.
The Dennis Noricks Memorial Scholarship Fund will support a student needing support to enter the wood working profession. Wood working was a personal passion of Dennis's , and this is a wonderful legacy to share with others.
Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle Summer Social event attendees donated $737.00 to the fund. Thank you to all for sharing our spirit of generosity and getting this fund off to a solid start!
 
 
I also would like to happily announce and welcome the three new members who joined Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle just after the event! Thank you for joining us Hannah Heebner, Lisa Krahel, and Gina Franciosa!! We are delighted you are part of our circle and look forward to getting to know you!
 
 
Please watch for details about our future events!
Best wishes for a wonderful rest of the summer!

29th Annual Jack Demmer Ford Golf Outing

29th Annual Jack Demmer Ford Golf Outing

 
 

No doubt about it, 2020 was a tough year for everyone.  Not a single person was able to escape the pressure put on us by Covid-19.  But through it all the Canton Police were there to serve our community. 

Each day they were on the front lines.  Now it’s time for us to give back. 

Each year the Canton Community Foundation hosts its charity golf outing which benefits the Canton Police Benevolence Fund.  Funds raised are used to support the families of officers who are injured or killed in the line of duty as well as offer assistance to residents in critical need.  Your sponsorship dollars have helped residents struggling with food insecurity, transportation in order to keep their jobs, basic human needs following house fires, and so much more.  This fund is also used to help local students through the Canton Police Benevolence annual scholarship. 

If you have ever thought, “how can I help?” this is how!
