Toronto: March 17

 

During these challenging times related to the COVID-19 pandemic, AboutFace wants to ensure regular communication with our stakeholders.

 

To support social distancing and the mitigation of spread, our staff are working from home until at least April 15. We are continuing with programs and services in virtual environments. Later this week, we will launch online activity and support sessions for children and youth. In addition, we are continuing with phone and virtual support and our Adult Networking calls. We are grateful to our staff and volunteers who are making adjustments to our work, to ensure we are able to support as many facial difference community members and their families as possible, at this difficult time.

 

We continue to register campers for all our camp locations and remain hopeful that we will be able to move forward with our camp programming this summer. Campers can be registered online. If any camp is cancelled for any reason whatsoever, we will provide full refunds to families. We encourage you to sign up your campers, to ensure their spot.

 

To our community members, volunteers, donors, and other stakeholders, the programs and services AboutFace provides are critical to supporting psychosocial health and well-being. Your support of our work through donations and volunteer time remain critical. We continue to build community engagement and supports to help people through this global crisis, and we are looking forward to welcoming campers this summer to Camp Trailblazers.

 

We will continue to provide updates and our Executive Director, Danielle Griffin, remains available for consultation: danielle@aboutface.ca or 416-597-2229 x24.
