Join us as #Peelgoespurple for kids on Dress Purple Day
On October 24, 2019, Peel CAS will join other CAS’s and community partners across Ontario to dress purple and raise awareness of how we can all work together to keep children and youth safe.
"It takes a community to support families and care for children and youth,” says Rav Bains, CEO, Peel CAS. “In Peel, we are very excited to be working with partners in our local school boards, EarlyON and day care centres, community organizations, the Region of Peel as well as our foster caregivers, volunteers and youth to spread this message.”
Peel CAS will be participating in a social media campaign during the month of October leading up to Dress Purple Day. We hope you can join us and dress purple on October 24. Be sure to share pictures of your family, friends and coworkers and use the hashtag #iBREAKthesilence and #Peelgoespurple.
Some highlights of how the Peel community is getting behind this initiative include:
Support from Peel District School Board, Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board,Conseil scolaire Viamonde and Conseil scolaire Catholique Monavenir to share information with educators, students and caregivers
A partnership with the Region of Peel which includes delegating to the Region and sharing information with daycares and EarlyON centres in the community
