Celebrating 15 years of partnership with Better Beginnings
Bayview Glen began its partnership with Adventure Place- Better Beginnings as it was just launching its Holiday Hamper Programme in 2001. The charitable organization works with young, vulnerable families to ensure healthy development of children up to six years of age. These families may be new to the country and having difficulty learning a new language, finding work, coping with a restricted budget, or finding it challenging accessing community services. Each class and mentor group at Bayview Glen fill a hamper for a selected family. The students are given a few details about their designated family including the ages of the children and their interests. Donations are sorted, packed and labeled for distribution. Volunteers from the school and Adventure Place hand deliver the gifts in early December.
