Dear Marion,

On behalf of Community Living Ontario, please accept our congratulations on – once again! – receiving the Donner Canadian Foundation Award for excellence in the delivery of social services.

This is the third time in four years that Community Living Campbellford / Brighton has received recognition from the Donner Foundation in the specific category of service delivery to people with disabilities, and the second time you have captured the Foundation’s top honour, this time among 652 organizations across Canada.

You and your board of directors, along with Chris Grayson and his staff, should be very proud of your collective accomplishments and in particular, of the consistently high standards which have earned this national recognition year after year.

In its selection process, the Donner Foundation specifically noted your Association’s commitment to the “Family Home” program. At a time when Ontario is taking the final steps toward closing institutions and returning people to their rightful place in the community, it is timely that you should receive national recognition for an initiative that really is what “Community Living” is all about.

Please convey my personal congratulations to all your volunteers and staff for this well-deserved national honour.


Garry Cooke,
