You can Light the Way for a student-in-need

 Your Light the Way gift to a local Halton student-in-need will help by providing basic necessities that allow them to continue attending school, improve their social engagement, and enable them to share in learning experiences with their classmates. This gift may seem small to you, however the barrier that you are breaking down for a student is HUGE - a Light the Way gift for local student often means being able to come to school …having friends….being able to participate in school activities like sports, field trips, experiential learning, co-op placements, and more.
