Let Them Be Kids

Let Them Be Kids is an all volunteer, non-profit organization created to build community capacity on the grassroots level, while building playgrounds, skate parks and fitness parks across Canada. These projects leave a legacy of community members who are inspired and better equipped to lay a strong foundation for a brighter tomorrow.

St. John Catholic Elementary School in Perth is a proud recipient of a 2010 Let Them Be Kids "Believe" Award! Every dollar raised by our community will be matched by Let Them Be Kids
to build a much needed playground at St. John's!

Thank You Home Depot Canada Foundation!

St. John's Catholic Elementary School students are thrilled to announce that the Home Depot Canada Foundation will be donating $5,000 as well as the support of "Team Depot"(the Home Depot's associate volunteer force) to help build our new school playground on BUILD DAY, May 29th! This is the most generous size donation granted to our playground build project, and the kindness of the Home Depot Canada Foundation is truly remarkable!

The Home Depot Canada Foundation was established in 2008 to expand The Home Depot Canada's commitment to giving back to the communities it serves. It is a private, Canadian charitable organization, which brings together volunteerism, do-it-yourself expertise, product donation and monetary grants to meet community needs.

Its mission is "dedicated to using our skills, knowledge and resources to develop sustainable home and communities for Canadians." 

St. John's is fortunate to be able to count on The Home Depot Canada Foundation as well as 10 Home Depot associate volunteers. The volunteers will be available to help build, clean, plant, create, develop, and improve our school yard on our school's BUILD DAY, scheduled for May 29, 2010. 

We thank you Home Depot Canada Foundation for your amazing support and commitment to supporting the development of healthy neighbourhoods!
