CKNW Ophans’ Fund
Pink Shirt Day

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

The Safe Schools Department is encouraging all Surrey Schools to participate in promoting “Bullying Awareness” and supporting the CKNW Ophans’ Fund and Pink Shirt Day.

The CKNW Orphans’ Fund ​are dedicated to enhancing the lives of children living with behavioural, physical, mental and social challenges living in BC communities. They are one of the largest sources of individual grant funding for low income families and their children and help over 15,000 children annually. In addition to their monthly granting and the well-known Picnic at Playland (for 3500 special needs children), they are the campaign organizers for Pink Shirt Day.

100% net proceeds raised from the sale of the t-shirts benefit programs in our community that focus on building children’s self-esteem, teach violence prevention and promote empathy and compassion.

In 2015, over $350,000 in grants were distributed to the following non-profits:
