Summertime Online Auction
In lieu of Flamborough Connects annual summer barbecue fundraiser, we are hosting a Summertime Online Auction. We have everything to meet your backyard and barbecue needs like new BBQ tools, a portable cooler to keep your drinks chilled as well as various different kitchen and outdoor products!
Auction opens: June 8th at 9:00am
Auction closes: June 17th at 4:00pm
Every donation made to Flamborough Connects during the month of June made through Canada Helps enters us into the draw to win $20,000!
What will $20,000 do for a small organization like Flamborough Connects? It will:
- Provide 2000 Flamborough Shops grocery deliveries for seniors, the disabled and financially disadvantaged rural residents without transportation
- Provide 400 free income tax returns for financially eligible residents (youth to senior) and ensure they have access to benefits, subsidies and refunds to pay their rent and feed their families
- Provide 400 Holiday Gift Baskets for disabled and isolated senior adults with low income
- Coordinate a year of volunteer workshops and seminars for volunteers and community agencies to ensure youth and adult volunteers of this community are connected to opportunities that make them feel good about giving back
- Replace outdated office equipment and software that no longer meets the challenges of a future online world
