The Forest Glade Baseball League would like to give a very special thanks to the following programs for their continued support in ensuring our organization continues to provide services to families with financial assistance.
Pathway to Potential
Since its creation in 2009, the City of Windsor’s poverty reduction strategy, Pathway to Potential, has targeted four key areas to assist low-income individuals and families in Windsor and Essex County:
- Community programs for low-income individuals and families;
- Subsidized recreation programs in the city and county;
- Subsidized bus transportation through Transit Windsor’s Affordable Pass Program (APP); and
- Research and communication initiatives which raise awareness of the issues related to poverty and the need for everyone to share in the solutions.
Canadian Tire Jumpstart.
Raising funds. Lifting spirits. Supporting dreams.
Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.
The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams.
Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Organized sports connect kids to their communities. Canadian Tire Corporation recognized this and makes sure that money raised stays where it is donated. Canadian Tire Corporation is Jumpstart’s biggest supporter as it funds all the general administrative expenses of Jumpstart, which means 100% of customer donations go directly to help kids in need.
We are very appreciative of the opportunity to be a member of Tecumseh Gaming Association at the Power Play Gaming Centre. All of the funds that we receive by working bingos are used to help cover the cost of our programs. Those costs include baseball equipment, team uniforms, umpire fees and diamond rental. Without the revenue from bingos, our registration fees would be double what they are now. If you play bingo or have family and friends that play bingo, please let them know that we would appreciate their support by playing at The Power Play Gaming Centre.
