Impala Canada donates child and youth masks » 2020-Oct-23
Connor Gives Impala Canada a Thumbs Up!
On Friday, October 23rd, representatives from Impala Canada visited George Jeffrey Children’s Centre to deliver their donation of 250 youth and child sized masks. A few of George Jeffrey Children’s Centre staff were on hand to accept the donation from Impala Canada, but, most importantly, Connor was on hand to accept their donation! Six year old Connor Swoluk gave Impala Canada the thumbs up because these masks will help keep him and his clinicians safe while he’s at the Centre for one of his appointments.
Connor is one of the 1,800+ children and youth seen at George Jeffrey Children’s Centre each year and he’s been coming to the GJCC since he was two years old. Connor’s mom Ashley says, “The Centre has been a huge support to Connor and our entire family and he’s come such a long way. Watching him climb up the stairs today was amazing to see and proof of his progress.”
Thank you Impala Canada! Your commitment to our community and to safety is evident in this kind donation of child and youth masks.
