Cause for a Cause
Cause for a Cause is Nickel Brook's effort to give back to the community and show our appreciation. Each season we select a charity or cause to support in this effort.
This season, we're raising funds for the Children's Aid Foundation of Halton:
The Children’s Aid Foundation of Halton (CAFH) was founded in 1990 as a registered charitable organization to raise funds for the children and youth being cared for by the Halton Children’s Aid Society (Halton CAS). Funds raised allow the Halton CAS to provide additional services that enhance the lives of abused and neglected children and youth living in Halton.
The Halton CAS receives basic funding from the provincial government to provide food and shelter to the children and youth in its care. Extra-curricular activities, post-secondary education and the needs of children and youth not in foster care but still receiving support services from Halton CAS, are not funded, or are insufficiently funded, by the government.
