Keep it Local By returning your empties to the Bottle Depot you are keeping your money right here on the Island. Did you know that putting your refundable containers into the blue recycle bin sends them to a facility on the mainland? In one year this adds up to $400,000 leaving the Island! Just think of how much good this money could do by keeping it in our community to support local charities like Whitecrow Village.
Future Fundraisers Does your community have a bottle depot with a similar charity fundraiser program? Let us know and we’ll register Whitecrow Village so that you can support us in your community.
If you have any questions about the program please contact Jacy Morissette, Community Relations & Development at 250.508.9035 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Whitecrow Village lending library is now catalogued & available.
Whitecrow Village FASD Society Membership!!! Please join us.
Joy, competency, and social success are among the descriptors of children and adolescents with FASD and their families who participate in Whitecrow Village programs. The Whitecrow model consistently yields experiences of belonging for children and their families who have often experienced marginalization or isolation in other settings.
Whitecrow activities are based on a unique approach to understanding and supporting people with FASD. Essentially we take research findings of FASD as a physical disorder and translate them into practice. Reducing failure due to primary disabilities can also reduce the manifestation of secondary behavioural characteristics. Most importantly, providing an environment of understanding, respect and relationship allows the strengths and gifts of people with FASD to be their most notable quality.
