During Community Living Mississauga’s 59th Annual General Meeting on June 18th, Enersource announced a $30,000 donation in support of two programs that will improve the lives of young people who have an intellectual disability.

As part of its Spirit of Giving initiative, Enersource donated the money to help fund two of Community Living Mississauga’s signature programs for 2014-15: the Children’s Summer Support Program; and, the Summer Teen Activity Program. The Children’s Summer Support Program provides individualized support to children between 4 and 12 years of age, while they participate in a local summer day camp. The Summer Teen Activity Program provides opportunities for youth aged 10 to 21 to participate in guided, fun-filled summer activities in the community.

“Programs like this are essential to developing a stronger and more inclusive community,” said Karen Ras, Director of Corporate Relations at Enersource. “We are honoured to support the exceptional work done by Community Living Mississauga.”

The two programs will ensure that individuals receiving support have an enhanced quality of life and their citizenship within the community is meaningfully improved.

“Community Living Mississauga is fortunate to have Enersource as a valued community partner and we are truly grateful for their generous donation,” said Keith Tansley, Executive Director at Community Living Mississauga. “Thanks to Enersource’s support, children and teens who have an intellectual disability will have the opportunity to participate alongside their non-disabled peers in summer camps and programs throughout Mississauga.”
