Community Chest Week
October 8-15, 2017
If you could help your neighbour in a time of need, would you? What if you didn’t know them, or their plight? This Thanksgiving, Maple Ridge residents are encouraged to host fundraisers in support of their neighbours who need a helping hand.
Community Chest Week will see events of all shapes and sizes throughout Maple Ridge, raising funds for the Community Chest. The Community Chest is a partnership between the Maple Ridge Community Foundation and the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Katzie Community Network. It provides immediate, one-time assistance to deal with a setback, to keep the individual and family from spiralling further into poverty.
Be it a bake sale or bottle collection, percentage from business sales or a collection box at school, creative fundraisers of all types are welcome and encouraged. The Maple Ridge Community Foundation and Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Katzie Community Network will assist with listing and promoting these fundraisers on their website and social media networks.

Big or small, every event, every dollar raised helps support the Community Chest program. Thank you for helping your neighbours in need!
