Socks for the Homeless

It’s a special time of year when we are often reminded how fortunate we are and how others might not be so lucky.  It’s really cold outside now, so we all bundle up and put on mittens and maybe an extra pair of socks to keep warm…but what if you don’t have any socks?  That’s what it’s like for the homeless. Can you imagine being outside all day long, with no socks?  Being able to get our feet warmed up is something that we all take for granted…but the Homeless don’t and I want to do something to help that…..and I think I know just the people to help me.  

Scout groups…we are going to start a movement to keep the homeless warm…we are going to show them that  Scouting Rocks…with Socks for the Homeless…. I have challenged all our groups to join us in this project and if everyone just bought one pair and brought them into a group……we could make a lot of people happy… there is always a local Church or Salvation army that would be pleased to take these gifts and ensure they get to the needy…and I have challenged the older youth to take the time and hand out the socks ourselves…..we want to show  our Scouting youth that we really are lending a hand. I have challenged each and every Scouter and Scout group to join me by locally collecting socks to show Scouting Rocks…with Socks for the Homeless. 

If every household gave one pair, we would have 750 pairs of socks….that will help a lot of people.  For any member in our Community that would like to help and donate socks for our cause….they can be dropped off to me at the Village Office or my home at 540 Dogwood.    I will put a box in my carport by the door appropriately  marked Socks for the Homeless.…all sizes needed!

Together we can make a difference…..one step at a time.
In the Scouting Spirit,
Maxine McLean

Literacy Funding Crisis

Good morning,

I am writing to ask for your help.  I recently attended a provincial literacy conference in Richmond, BC.  Decoda, BC’s provincial literacy organization and advocate, informed all of the literacy outreach coordinators that we have not been allocated funding for the next year.  You may recall that we had our funding cut in January 2013.  The Ministry of Education then found some money and gave us some funding.  This was a one-time deal.

This fall, a BC select standing committee on finance made the following recommendation: Provide annual funding of $2.5 million for community literacy work across BC.

As Gold River Literacy Society’s literacy outreach coordinator, I have been asked to encourage you to support literacy through a letter-writing campaign.

Please, task group members, partner organizations, program participants, and other champions – write a letter to your MLA.  This is now critically important.  MLAs need to see that members of their constituencies support the literacy coordinator position and literacy programs.

  1. Send your letter by Canada Post or bring it by the GRLS Resource Centre and we will post it for you. 

Mail to:
Ms. Claire Trevena, MLA 
Room 201
Parliament Buildings
Victoria, BC
V8V 1X4

  1. Send us a copy of your letter by email: literacy [at] conumacable [dot] com.  We would like to forward your letters to Decoda.
  2. It is important for your letter to be in your words.  However some key messages you may want to include are:

·         The literacy outreach coordinator is an important role in our community.  As a result of the position we have more and diverse programming, as well as more partnerships and collaboration.

·         People in the community have benefited – provide examples.

·         The position is building community.  People with improved literacy skills are more able to participate in the community and the economy.

·         This work needs to be sustained over time – annual funding is critically important and currently there is not enough money in the budget for the position.

  1. You may want to provide your letter to your local paper.

Thank you so much for your support.  If you have any questions, please contact me at the number or email below.  Or, stop by the GRLS Resource Centre.  I’d love to meet with you.

 

With sincere thanks for your support,

Carrie Tarasoff
