The Haliburton Lions are "IN" to support our students to get internet connectivity for school
The Haliburton Children, Youth and Family Services Internet Connectivity Working Group is launching a new fundraising initiative: “Are You in?” - to address inequities in internet connectivity and the Implications for child and youth in Halliburton County. The working group, chaired by Marg Cox, Executive Director of Point in Time Centre for Children, Youth and Parents, has determined the need for both long term and creative short-term solutions. In the group’s publication the Lions learn that significant barriers to reliable internet connectivity exist for children, youth and families across our community. We learn that these barriers, however, do not fall evenly, and existing disparities have only widened for those most in need of connection to supportive services during COVID. Being connected is critical for the development, health, and well-being of youth.
The Lions are pleased to be able to use funds, recently raised through their Cash Calendar Lottery, to support this initiative. Lions Jim and Marilyn Frost present a cheque for $1000 to Marg Cox. We are in!
