News: Back-To-School News
Last month, Bruce Kehler, CEO of Canex Building Supplies Ltd. of Chilliwack, helped make the back-to-school season a whole lot brighter for over 100 Surrey and Whalley students. He announced an incredible back-to-school donation of $25 000 in the form of $250 gift cards to the Surrey Urban Mission Society Day Camp Adventures students. These funds will help to accelerate urgently needed progress for children from economically challenged families.
This announcement was made at The Surrey Urban Mission Summer Camp closing ceremony, which took place at Surrey Urban Mission on August 20, 2015. A spectacular variety show was organized by Jonquil Hallgate, which featured live music, with campers singing songs, performing skids, dances and playing the piano. The celebration atmosphere was over the top. The event was attended by several dignitaries, including Jinny Sims, Sue Hammell, Bruce Ralston, and Jasbir Sandhu. The campers, camp leaders, and their parents were there to thank the organizers for a highly successful summer camp season. In particular, they gave special thanks to Bruce Kehler, who had also sponsored the entire camp with his previous $25 000 donations.
Some children from well-to-do families get to go to summer camp every year. Those who come from poor families never get to go. For many children, the new school year means new clothes and all the new school supplies that they need. For children living below the poverty line, the reality is very different. Financial budgets are tighter, and parents often must focus on basic needs like food and shelter. This leaves very little extras such as new school supplies. Children without school supplies have lower attendance rates and do poorly, which leads to higher dropout rates. Teachers often use their own money to buy these children supplies. A report from the Surrey Poverty Coalition says there are 20 000 children and youth living in poverty--more than anywhere else in the province.
Kehler credits his new relationship with SUMS to Sikandar Hayat, a director of Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation, who introduced him to SUMS. Bruce believes that "sometimes a few hundred dollars stands in the way of a chance and a child, and all children should have the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential." The Amazing Tutors Childen's Foundation greatly appreciates Bruce and Georgina Kehler's generous contributions to the summer camp and for the back-to-school gift cards.
Giving with a Heart, Mind, and Spirit --Your Handful of Spiritual Jewels
There is no one exactly like you, my friend.
Whether it is your charitable smile, or the modesty on your face,
Everything that radiates out of you is purely and authentically yours.
Whether it is the piety in your heart, or the diligent work in your hands,
It all belongs to you.
You own every thoughtful action and gentle feeling,
And the soft song that comes from your voice.
Whether they be for others or yourself, you own your aspiring dreams
Your inspiring hopes and difficult fears.
At any given moment, you own your mistakes, unforeseen failures,
rising successes, heart-felt triumphs
And all that surely belongs to you.
You own the jewels of being spiritually you.
You own the blue sapphire of patience, which allows you to cope with worldly difficulties.
You own the green emerald of compassion, which directs you to be sensibly close and kind to others.
You own the amethyst of kindness, which lifts your doling hand to give and help those in need.
You own the sparkling diamond of vision which guides you to make sense and order out of this world of toil.
No one can take away your spiritual free will and your own self-determination.
No one can take away your alexandrite of underlying strength.
No one can do a rather more graceful and better job of being you,
So thank you, my friend, for being authentically you.
Thank you, my friends, for supporting and being with us.
Thank you, my friends, for providing opportunities for all children to be in a giving, caring community.
-Alexandra, Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation
