Tuesday November 29 was the 10th annual Giving Tuesday

It’s a day when Canadians make a difference for those we care about by donating to our favourite charities.
We thank you for making Giant Steps one of yours!

Your donations will be put right to work, funding our kids’ speech, behaviour and occupational therapy programs.

Donations are much needed here at Giant Steps throughout the year.  We do not receive any government funding, and it is only with the help of donors like you that kids with autism can receive the specialized therapy programs they so desperately need. 
Tax receipts are issued for gifts of $20 and up.

If you are interested please fill in the form below and we’ll get back to you!

More information
We are fortunate each year to receive significant funds for our kids’ therapy + life skills programs. You will be representing Giant Steps as the charity that is being supported that particular evening.

Before starting this volunteer opportunity, you would be expected to do approximately 30 minutes of orientation (online presentation and reading materials), as well as shadow a current volunteer for one session.

You will be working with one other volunteer. You will simply need to be courteous and friendly to the patrons, assist them if required by answering gaming questions or directing them to the appropriate bingo world employee, any duties if requested.

A Giant Steps t-shirt would be provided to you which must be worn during your shift.
