Holiday Charity Initiatives

This holiday season, the Richland community is helping to make a difference!

We recently participated in the Out-of-the-Cold drive, where we collected gently used coats, scarves, winter hats, mitts, boots and snow-pants under our ‘Giving Tree’ for local Richmond Hill families. We are also supporting the Family Giving Program, ‘Holiday Heroes,’ where each school division is collecting new donations to support 3 York Region families. These projects are an extension of Richland’s ongoing commitment to community service.

‘Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club’ Calendar

The Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club, Canada’s first women-only boxing club, presents a 2012 calendar in support of Shape Your Life. The calendar features 12 powerful images of Toronto’s toughest female boxers, including Richland Academy’s Grade 5/6 Teacher, Megan Cooney.

The calendars are being sold at $20 each with part of the proceeds going toward Shape Your Life, a recreational boxing program for female and trans survivors of violence.
