How to Donate
The George Jeffrey Children's Centre has been providing
vital services for children with physical and developmental
disabilities for more than 60 years. With the miracles of
modern medicine, more premature and sick babies are
surviving than ever before. The demand is greater and they
continue to require our treatment services from birth so that
they may learn to crawl, walk and even talk over time.
The new Centre has been open for a year, and all our special
needs children now have a new, modern, assessment and
treatment centre in which to receive the special therapy and
assistance that they need. With a brand new facility there are
still needs to be addressed, our treatment and communication
equipment is outdated and needs to be upgraded to meet
the demands of the over one thousand children from our
community who need our help. This equipment is vital to the
development of the children in these programs. Through your
generous donations the George Jeffrey Children's Foundation
is able to assist to ensure that every child receives the
treatment they deserve.
This is a way of honouring a special person, occasion
or remembering the memory of a loved one while
supporting a worthwhile cause.
