Your Dollars Are A Great Help!
Win! Win! Win!
Three boys and a Granddad proved that everyone can make a difference if they decide to do it.
Dave Goddard and his two grandsons, Jackson and Carter Cooling, along with their friend, Owen Nowitsky decided to raise money for the Compassion Society.
They sold sports cards, coca cola bottles, records and a few t-shirts. They called it Jackson and Carter's Memorabilia Table and they raised over $100.00, then their mom, Joelle from Joelles' on Brant street topped it up with over $60.
Not only did they help a worthwhile cause, they gained a real feeling of accomplishment.
Initiative and community spirit still lives in our young people. Thanks guys!!

Compassion Society has humble beginnings.
We started out in 2001 as one rack of free clothing in Mina Wahidi’s basement. We have now grown substantially and provide clothing, food and community referrals to Halton's needy citizens.
The growth process was made possible through the support of various community groups and individuals. These include Aldershot Presbyterian Church, who provided Compassion Society with its first public space, as well as the United Way who provided our first funding in 2006.
More recently, Compassion Society has received its charitable status and we appreciate the support of ForestView – church without walls for helping us in our organizational development. As we find ourselves in a recession, we believe that the services of Compassion Society are critical to helping people through tough times. The growing number of individuals and families that visit us is evidence of this need.
