TORONTO (March 22, 2018) – The Rexall Foundation has donated $15,000 to Project AIM Programs, which caters to young children with special needs and complex medical care in Toronto. The donation will go directly towards Project AIM’s after-school care programs held every afternoon to keep children busy and engaged, giving their parents much needed respite.
“The Rexall Foundation is pleased to provide children with special needs the opportunity to attend after-school care and the ease of parents knowing their child is well taken care of and in good hands at Project AIM,” said Paul Matteis, Board Member, Rexall Foundation. “The Rexall Foundation is committed to positively impact children and Project AIM provides not only children with special needs care, but their parents and siblings as well.”
“The after-school program participants have doubled since last year and the generous donation from the Rexall Foundation came at a great time,” said Leah Nussbaum, Office Manager, Project AIM Programs. “The after-school program would not be possible without organizations like the Rexall Foundation who see the importance of children’s health and wellness.”
The Rexall Foundation has been helping build strong and vibrant communities by supporting numerous charitable organizations since 2002. Whether it’s a community or children’s hospital or a disease prevention organization, the Foundation values the role it plays in helping the delivery of numerous programs and services in Canada.
