Children are back on the ice, and some will be skating for a cause in the coming weeks. On October 19th, Skate Amherstburg will host a skate-a-thon to fundraise $10,000 toward the purchase of a multi-use vehicle for ACS.

How the Skate-a-Thon Will Support The Community
After successfully raising enough money to purchase an accessible van last year, ACS is looking to round out its fleet for the long term and replace the last of their aging mini-vans, both now over ten years old. With costs to maintain these vehicles continuing to rise, this vehicle will make dollars given to ACS go even further moving forward.
The vehicle will be used for the CareLink Health Transit service and to transport their Meals on Wheels to drop-off points in Harrow and LaSalle where they are given to volunteers who deliver to residents in those towns. We need your help to keep providing these vital services while keeping costs low for clients!
