The Milverton Agricultural Society and the Optimist Club of Mornington, supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and Stratford Perth Community Foundation, recently donated 60 “Kids Fun Care Packages” to Huron Perth Public Health.

Local youth, connected to the Health Unit through the Healthy Babies Healthy Children program, Mother and Young Child Clinics and school-based programs will be the recipients of this generous donation. 

Families will receive one care package containing items purchased and collaboratively gathered by many local Perth East businesses. “The Optimist Club of Mornington, in partnership with the Milverton Agricultural Society, hope to allow children to forget about our COVID-19 restrictions for a little while,” says Optimist secretary Tricia Holmes Storey.

“We are proud to be a part of a community that values inclusivity,” says Public Health Nurse Tara Smith, “And proud to work closely with clubs that role model the importance of advocating and supporting our youth.”
