Giving Tuesday Canada South


John McGivney Children's Centre

At JMCC, we are committed to helping children and youth with special needs reach their full potential. Together, we're working toward a future of participation, acceptance and opportunities. Your support of our Centre is greatly appreciated. We couldn’t do what we do without the generosity of donors and community partners like you!

This #GivingTuesday we’re inviting you to be part of our ‘next big thing’: our playground project: Play McGivney.

We're redeveloping our outdoor side yard into a place where children and youth with special needs, their families, their friends and the community will play, learn and grow together outdoors in an accessible and welcoming environment.  Our accessible playground and nature experience will  provide both play and therapeutic benefits.

Inclusion and accessibility are the main goals of our design received in-kind from Playworld. Play McGivney is designed in a way that children of all abilities will truly be able to enjoy their experience together

In order to build a space that fulfills the size and scope of this unique, one-of-a kind design, we need your help! Our dream is to create a space where all our community’s children  can play, learn and enjoy outdoor adventures together, and your donation can help make our dream a reality.

Are you interested in being a part of Play McGivney? This is your chance to be a part of creating a space where children and youth with special needs, their families, their friends and our community will be able to socialize, interact and play together in a fully accessible and inclusive outdoor environment that celebrates the diversity of our community and promotes skill development for those of all abilities.

Construction of Play McGivney begins in the Spring of 2017. Thank you for your support.
