Parkdale Parent's Primary Prevention Program
Play has never been so important
Holy cabin fever! We’re months into social isolation so it’s no surprise that our souls are starting to feel as raw as our well-washed hands.
For adults, we can keep ourselves busy (bring on binge watching and endless scrolling), but for the kiddos, this new reality is a big change and likely a difficult adjustment.
The Parkdale Parents Primary Prevention Program (5Ps) supports hundreds of parents with kids under the age of six every year. Many parents in the Parkdale neighbourhood rely on their drop-in programs for parenting advice and support, and the kids rely on the programs for access to all sorts of fun and toys – a luxury they don’t always have at home.
How you can help
With parenting programs on pause, so many of the kids they support don’t have access to toys right now. Kids without toys?! Nah ah, nope! We’re pooling funds for low cost and easy to transport toys for these families. We’re also doing pick up requests for age appropriate (0-6yrs) used toys in great condition. In other words, all pieces are accounted for and no food, puke or other gross kiddy stuff is caked on. Oh and they need to be washed down and covid-free! 🙂
Note: Free pick ups are offered in the Parkdale / High Park / Junction / King West ish area on Thursday July 9th from 9-11am.
