SDG — May is Community Living Month, a collective effort in advocating for the full participation and inclusion of all people who have an intellectual disability, their families and friends.

As part of the many events and activities that are planned for the month, Community Living Dundas County is participating in an Ontario-wide initiative on Friday, May 4 called Shine a Light on Community Living.

Last year, Toronto’s CN Tower, Fort Erie’s Peace Bridge and London’s Hallmark Buildings were some of the many landmarks and structures that were illuminated in the Community Living colours. Locally, our administration building at 55 Allison Avenue in Morrisburg and the elevators at Parrish and Heimbecker, Limited in Winchester were illuminated.

We would love to build on this and see you demonstrate your support for the inclusion of individuals with an intellectual disability in our community on May 4. We ask that you join us in participating in this initiative by changing your building’s exterior lights to blue and green in support of the Community Living movement. Together, we can create a powerful example of inclusion that will shine not only in Dundas County, but throughout many other communities around the province.

Green and blue-coloured floodlights are available for purchase at Canadian Tire as well as other home improvement stores. If you need support in purchasing the lights, this is something that we could offer. We thank you in advance for your time and consideration. For more information, please contact Shayla at sbrush@cldc.ca
