Russell I. Alexander Awards 2016 Charitable Giving Fund Grant

Luke`s Place is excited to receive $2,500.00.

BROOKLIN, ON December 21, 2016 –

A local business has just boosted Luke`s Place with a grant of $2,500.00.

As part of this giving fund, Luke’s Place Support & Resource Centre for Women & Children has been provided with a donation in the amount of $2,500. Luke’s Place opened its doors in 2003 and served 528 abused women with children in Durham Region last year. Luke’s Place was named in memory of Luke, a 3 ½ year old boy who was murdered by his father on his first unsupervised access visit. Luke’s Place is devoted to improving the experiences of abused women in navigating the complex family law process and works towards making sure no other child would face a similar fate.

Luke’s Place Executive Director has said that, “Demand for our services grows annually and donations such as this go a long way towards helping women and their children who are desperate to rebuild their lives free from abuse.”

Luke’s Place Fund Development & Marketing Manager said, “Since we do
not have any core annualized support from government, we rely heavily on community funding to provide abused women and their children in Durham Region with access to our support and resources. Luke’s Place needs donations such as these now more than ever.”

Luke’s Place was also the recipient of a Russell I. Alexander Giving Fund Grant in 2015.

The Russell I. Alexander Charitable Giving Fund provides grants and financial support to community organizations that are doing great work, but may not be as visible as some of their larger counterparts.

Russell I. Alexander Awards 2014 Charitable Giving Fund Grant to Kawartha Lakes Food Source

The Kawartha Lakes Food Source is excited to receive $5,000.00.

LINDSAY, ON December 16th, 2014 –

A local business has just helped a local food bank with a grant of $5,000.00. The Kawartha Lakes Food Source is a community effort and not-for-profit organization of volunteers working to reduce hunger in the City of Kawartha Lakes

The Russell I. Alexander Charitable Giving Fund provides grants and financial support to community organizations that are doing great work, but may not be as visible as some of their larger counterparts.

Board Member Dr. Brian Fagan notes that “Kawartha Lakes Food Source opened its doors in March of 2002, after research by members of Rotary revealed a patchwork system of food aid by churches and social agencies. With one agency devoted to collecting and distributing food to food banks, front-line workers could focus on clients rather than stocking their shelves. …the working poor and one-third are on provincial disability support while nine per cent are on a pension. About 40 per cent of those receiving food from the Food Source through its members are children. …In a three-month period, the Food Source provides 11,000 servings of milk, fresh fruit and healthy snacks such as granola bars to hungry schoolchildren.”
