On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are pleased to announce that after our initial
incorporation in July of 2019 within the Province of Ontario, we have now achieved full
charitable status under that Charitable Directorate within the Government of Canada.
In this year of much uncertainty we have maintained operations, including all of our paid staff
positions. We cannot thank our initial donors enough who believed in our underlying mission
and vision, they include: District Social Services Board of Sault Ste. Marie, Algoma Autism
Foundation, Sault Ste. Marie PUC, HealthCare Solutions, ERGO Office Plus, YES You Can
Employment, Sault Ste. Marie Community Career Centre, Program Read and our founding
Board of Directors. Our COVID Recovery would not have been possible without a recovery loan from the Community Development Corporation. To become an online donor, please visit: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/grocer-4-good-ability-development-program/
