Annual Krayons for Kids Campaign Looking for Donations
October 9 to 16, 2001

(Brampton) - The Region of Peel's Children's Services, in partnership with the Association of Early Childhood Educators Ontario (AECEO) Peel Branch, is participating in the Krayons for Kids Campaign, with donations being accepted from October 9 to 16 at various locations throughout Peel Region.

The Krayons for Kids Campaign is a donation drive for both craft materials and monetary donations (which will be used to purchase craft supplies). This year all donations received will be distributed to the Brampton Neighbourhood Resource Centre and the Mississauga Parent-Child Resource Centre. Both centres provide many resources to the community, including parent/caregiver drop in support groups, parent/child playgroups and toy lending services.

"The Region of Peel Children's Services really enjoys being part of this campaign," said Lorna Reid, Director of Children's Services. "Through donations of craft supplies we are not only enhancing a child's self-expression and sense of self-esteem, we are also contributing to a child's development in a direct and tangible way."

What kinds of items can be donated?

  • Glue sticks
