Chigamik Community Health Centre celebrates GivingTuesday, joining millions around the world participating in the global generosity movement on November 30, 2021

November 24, 2021  

Midland, Ontario – November 24, 2021 – Centre de santé communautaire Chigamik Community Health Centre (CSC Chigamik CHC) has once again joined the GivingTuesday movement in Canada – a global day of generosity happening on November 30, 2021. Just as Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season and continues to gain traction across the country. Since 2012, GivingTuesday has united millions of Canadians to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.

This GivingTuesday, CSC Chigamik CHC is asking members of the community to support its goal of raising funds to provide families living in North Simcoe with “ready to cook” meals for the holidays. Chigamik staff will assemble the food baskets and deliver them to local families.

“By joining the GivingTuesday campaign again this year, we’re hoping to inspire everyone in our community to promote the spirit of giving back. Whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, encouraging kindness or giving to a charity, every act of generosity counts,” said Jessica North, Interim Executive Director, CSC Chigamik CHC.

On November 30th and throughout the holiday season, CSC Chigamik CHC is encouraging donors to support giving back to their community. Donations can be made to CSC Chigamik CHC by visiting https://givingtuesday.ca/partners/centre-de-sante-communautaire-chigamik-community-health-centre.

CSC Chigamik CHC would like to thank its community partners – Askennonia Seniors Centre, Belleroots Farm, Farm2Door, Foodland Midland, Georgian Bay Métis Council, Graffiti Art, LA Farms, Midland Fire Department and Mary and Ray Nason – for their generous donations.

About GivingTuesday
GivingTuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement. It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a
day that encourages people to do good: make someone smile, help a neighbour or stranger, show up
for an issue you care about, or give some of what you have to those in need. Over the past nine years
it has since grown into a global movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to
transform their communities and the world. For more information visit www.givingtuesday.ca.
