The Sutton Volunteer Centre-CAB Sutton has launched its first fundraising campaign “Go Barefoot for the CAB’s New Home” to the community to help complete the financing of the future Olivet Generations House.

Firefighters and the Principal of the Sutton School “barefoot for CAB Sutton”

Throughout the month of July 2021, community members will be encouraged to get creative by accepting the challenge to “Go Barefoot for the CAB.”

In solidarity towards the people of our community experiencing vulnerability and marginalization, everyone is invited to take a photo of themselves barefoot, make a donation to the CAB Sutton, share the photo on social media using the #GoBarefootfortheCAB and encourage another person to join the challenge. The goal of this event is to create a chain of solidarity and to raise awareness around the fact that we can all face vulnerability at different times.

The Maison des générations–Olivet House will bring together, under one roof, the CAB Sutton’s bilingual community services for people of all ages to better respond to the growing and diverse needs of the population. These services include the Meals on Wheels, the food bank, community cafés, the collective kitchen, intergenerational activities, family services, and outreach work.
