Toronto non-profits team up for year-end event
The Phil Child Care Foundation (PCCF) and the Maureen Teen Mom’s Foundation (MTMF) plan family-friendly year-end celebration on December 17
TORONTO (November 28, 2022) — The end of the year is a time for reflection and planning, and as those celebrations commence and before the planning begins, The Phil Child Care Foundation (PCCF) presents an opportunity for area residents to come together for a free and fun family event at 1:30 p.m. December 17 at the Jenner Jean-Marie Community Centre, 48 Thorncliffe Park Drive East, York.
The End of the Year Event for Children, Youth and Families will bring together people from different parts of Canada for one last event of the year.
“For too many families, there are far too few opportunities to come together and enjoy each other’s company,” said PCCF director Phillip Mugabi. “We are thrilled to be able to offer everyone a day to join in celebration and fellowship as we turn the page on 2022 and look forward to the potential in the coming year.”
The event is a collaboration with Maureen Teen Mom’s Foundation (MTMF), previously known as Maureen Teen Mom’s Network.
“Thanks to the amazing staff and community supporters at Maureen Teen Mom’s Foundation (MTMF), we are able to present this free opportunity for family fun,” Mugabi said. “Their work in Toronto and beyond is a testament to the power of a dedicated group of individuals working to improve their community.”
MTMF focuses on solving the challenges associated with young motherhood, a situation recently noted by Save the Children as affecting millions.
Annually, 13 million children are born to mothers under the age of 20 worldwide, according to the MTMF.
“MTMF is a champion for young mothers across the globe that face countless challenges that accompany raising children,” Mugabi said. “We are excited to work with them to host the End of the Year Event for Children, Youth and Families for all families later this year.”
“We believe this event will be a meaningful milestone to end the year and to acknowledge those great friendships and networks cultivated throughout 2022,” he continued. “And, of course, it will be an evening filled with fun and laughter as we welcome together the potential of 2023.”
The Phil Child Care Foundation strives to support youth and children in various development avenues such as innovation, creativity, computer literacy, software literacy, leadership, leveraging talent, self-development and communications.
“Anywhere we can positively impact families, we look to make a difference at the PCCF,” Mugabi said.
Mugabi has been involved in transforming communities since 1998. He was featured in Beach Metro News only around six months after arriving in Canada and has been a frequent agent of positive change in the community since.
The PCCF is only the latest component of those efforts and continues to grow. Mugabi believes helping individuals, youth, families and community organizations is a calling that he is proud and humbled to continue.
“We may not see the outcomes from events like the End of the Year Event for Children, Youth and Families until far in the future,” Mugabi said. “But as our foundations continue to enrich the lives of Ontario residents, we are happy to know that, while we may not see it directly, the reward to the future is immeasurable.”
