Surrey, BC - On July 9, 2015, volunteers from Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation came out to support the Surrey Urban Mission Society, which was presented with an enormous grant for their SUMS Summer Day Camp from Canex Building Supplies. Dignitaries, including Jinny Sims (MP), Jasbir Sandhu (MP), and several Surrey City Councilors, including Mike Starchuk, Vera LeFranc, and Mary Martin, were in attendance. As volunteers, Surrey City Council members, prominent dignitaries, and the campers themselves looked on, CEO of Canex Building Supplies Ltd. Bruce Kehler announced his company's donation of $25 000, and wished the campers all the best in their adventures, stating: "What you will experience at summer camp this year will never be forgotten," and speaking of the impact summer camp made upon him in his youth.
More than one hundred children from the community will take part in a wonderful and engaging opportunity with their peers. Bruce credits this new relationship with SUMS to Sikandar Hayat, a director of Amazing Tutors' Children's Foundation, who introduced him to the Surrey Urban Mission Society, where he found the need for his donation, and embarked on what he hopes will be a long lasting relationship with the mission center. To thank him for his generous donation, volunteers from the Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation also presented Bruce with a commemorative plaque and flowers to commemorate his extensive service to the community on behalf of both the foundation and the community.
The Whalley area of Surrey has one of the highest rates of child poverty in Canada. SUMS Summer Day Camp is a caring, positive and inclusive experience for these children -with acceptance not only based on income, but also disabilities. This year's camp includes one boy who is autistic and another who has a developmental disability. The camp brings summer fun to the children of families who otherwise could not afford to attend such a program. Many children attending the program have already been involved with for several years. Targeting ages 5-13, the camp provides fun and educational events and teaches the campers leadership skills as they progress in age, skills that many eventually use when they become Junior and Senior Camp Leaders at age 15 or older. The mission's programming reaches farther than just the camp-goers, with the volunteers finding their lives enriched by the experience as well.
Our directors of the Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation are happy to have initiated the fundraising campaign, collected monetary funds, and played an important role in the partnership between Canex Building Supplies Ltd. and the Surrey Urban Mission Society. We feel extremely blessed to have been given the opportunity to work with Bruce Kehler and Jonquil Hallgate, and we thank Bruce for donating another
$25 000 for his Back-to-School Giving to the children. We wish the campers all the best in their coming adventures. Essentially, by partnering up with Surrey Urban Mission Society, we are able to support the families we serve and provide some amazing children with life-changing camp experiences where they can build self-confidence and develop independence, and carry those skills and experiences into adulthood.
