Recycling Program

     Many thanks for your continued support of the recycling program. This month Tuesday, September 4th has been designated as a recycling blitz day. If you or any of your friends have recyclables that you might like to donate to the program, we would appreciate it. Recyclables can be dropped off at the Perlin Centre on Tuesday, September 4th, and we will take them to the recycling depot. All monies go directly to the client recreation fund. As per government regulations, please ensure to remove straws, bottle stoppers etc. Your continued support it is greatly appreciated.
     On another note, I would like to remind you that if you are normally one of the customers, who drop your Canadian Tire Money in the plexi glass drum on your way out of the store, why not donate your Canadian Tire Money to the plexi glass drum at the Perlin Centre. We use this much needed money to purchase program supplies. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Coins for Prizes

     We are continuing with collecting coins for prizes for the clients’ activities and special events. Once again, I kindly thank you for your support and ask that if you have any loose coin laying around in your pocket, purse or drawer that you would like to donate, please send them along. Your kind generosity is greatly appreciated.

Respite Payroll

     As you are aware the Vera Perlin Society is a non-profit, charitable organization which provides services and supports to individuals living with a developmental disability.
     As a charity we are always looking at new ways to generate revenue in order to support the services we offer. One area we are actively trying to develop is our Respite Payroll Service. We offer administration of payroll to individuals who require respite care.
     The payroll service is a benefit to the individuals who receive the respite funding as they do not have to worry about the administration or funding of the payroll. The Vera Perlin Charitable Foundation will also benefit as any revenues generated from doing this service are redirected to the programs we offer and then in turn benefit all clients of The Vera Perlin Society.
     This letter is to ask you to consider having the Vera Perlin Charitable Foundation as your payroll service provider. We currently administer a professional, dependable payroll service and would like the opportunity to do yours.
     For additional information on this service you can call Mavis Roberts at the Vera Perlin Society’s Head Office, 739-6017, or you could reach Mavis via e-mail,
     We would appreciate your consideration to provide your payroll services.

     Once again, we are asking for your support to help with the sale of tickets on a 50/50 draw; minimum prize $1000.00. Tickets are $1.00 each and will be drawn on September 13th at the Vera Perlin Annual Charity Golf Tournament, Bally Haly Country Club. All ticket stubs and money must be returned no later than Friday, September 7th, 2018. Last year’s prize was $3600.00. The continued success of our program is dependent upon your support. We appreciate your support and encourage you to assist with the sale of these tickets in an effort to help maintain the high level of programming offered to the clients. Your kindness is greatly appreciated.

Candy Bar Drive

     Once again we will be seeking your support with our candy bar drive. The bars are scheduled to arrive after the 3rd week of September. Bars are $3.00 each. The continued success of our programs is dependent upon the support of our parents, volunteers and community sponsors. We appreciate your continued support and encourage you to assist us in maintaining the support we have within our membership and community.
