Mountainview LemonAID Day Raises $85,134!

Thank YOU for Kids Helping Kids!

Mountainview LemonAID Day was a fun, family day that gave children and families the opportunity to set up their own stand to sell lemonade and donate all the proceeds to FACS Niagara to send kids to summer camp.

Thanks to the 90 families who hosted a Mountainview LemonAID Day stand, the hundreds of donors, and the wonderful sponsors, we raised $85,134 to send vulnerable kids to “Summer Smiles” camps this July and August!

You can help vulnerable children and youth go to camp this summer!

The last two years have been very difficult for kids and especially difficult for kids in need of the protection and support of FACS Niagara. Children and youth need the positive experiences of week-long summer camps more than ever!

Your donation now will give vulnerable children and youth a summer camp experience they desperately need and will cherish forever!

Children, Youth and Families
Need Your Emergency Support

With the COVID-19 crisis now in a sixth wave, it is increasingly difficult for the vulnerable children, youth and families served by FACS Niagara to meet even their most basic needs. Families needing to turn to food banks or other community resources are finding those supports overwhelmed.

That’s why we need your help for vulnerable families and youth – to ensure they have what they need to make it through this economic crisis.

Family & Children’s Services Niagara works with some of our community’s most vulnerable children, youth, and their families.

While FACS Niagara works to protect children and youth and strengthen families, the Niagara Foundation for Family & Children’s Services raises funds and awareness to support and help children, youth and families in the Niagara Region to reach their full potential. Although FACS Niagara receives funding to provide protection and support services, the FACS Foundation raises funds so that local kids in need can enjoy a summer camp experience and youth in care have opportunities for college, university and job skills training. Thanks to generous donors and volunteers, the Foundation also provides emergency COVID-19 supports so youth and families can help meet their basic needs and stay strong. The Foundation also supports capital improvements at FACS Niagara facilities and works with the community to support children and families during Holidays and the Festive Season.

Thanks to the community’s generous support, in 2021:
