Description: Community is a word that is used a lot. So much so, that when asked to define it, sometimes it can morph into a vague grey haze of ideas and definitions that end up sounding more like an academic term paper than what it truly should be. It's about people, plain and simple. That's why it was a welcome reminder to all this past month as Shelldale Better Beginnings, Better Futures hosted their 2nd annual Winter Warm-Up Fundraiser. A day to give back, serve, and support a foundation rooted in the idea of supporting one another. The day featured live music, a hot 4-course lunch supplied by local restaurants, a 50/50 raffle, and a silent auction. Proceeds from the fundraiser go to support after-school and summer programmes for children and teens, a nutritious breakfast club, home visitors for new parents, and community development programmes. Better Beginnings, Better Futures also acts as a community hub, allowing it to not only provide frontline programming but to partner with other local agencies to help engage and facilitate the programmes of other organisations throughout Guelph.
