Angel Campaign 2018

Rhythm & Pitch’s 2018 Angel Campaign got underway quietly in January, but it’s off to a good start.

The R&P board set a goal of $4,000 for the 2018 spring campaign, which will continue until the target is achieved.

About three-quarters of the goal has been reached without much publicity. Donations from an individual donor ($1,000) and the Barrie Lions Club ($500) gave the campaign a much needed early boost. The Lions Club came on board as a first time donor after a visit to R&P classrooms.

The board is hoping more donors will step forward as word of the campaign spreads.

Donations to Grace United Church designated for Rhythm & Pitch are tax receipt eligible.

Donations can be made on R & P Wednesdays or at the church office between 10 a.m. & 1 p.m., Mondays to Fridays.

Rhythm & Pitch has always depended on the generosity of individuals and groups who support the program. Please consider becoming an “Angel”.
