Reminder

Coins for Prizes


     We are continuing with collecting coins for prizes for our clients’ activities and special events. Once again, I kindly thank you for your support and ask that if you have any loose coin lying around in your pocket, purse or drawer and would like to donate them, please send them along. Many thanks for your generosity during 2017. Your kindness is greatly appreciated.




Recycling Program


     Many thanks for your continued support of the recycling program. This month, Thursday, February 22nd 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 Thursday, February 22nd, 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.

Valentine’s Day Tickets


     I kindly ask your support once again with the help of our Valentine’s Day ticket sweep for the clients’ recreation program. The proceeds from the sale of these tickets will go directly to the Recreation Program to cover things like the Christmas Dinner and Dance and other recreational activities. Tickets are $1.00 each. Please check with your son/daughter for these tickets. Ticket stubs and money are due February 9th. Your continued support 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.
     We ask you to consider having the Vera Perlin Charitable Foundation as your payroll service provider. We currently administer a professional, dependable payroll service to approximately 40 clients and would like the opportunity to do yours.
     For additional information on this service you can call Mavis Pearlman at the Vera Perlin Society’s Head Office, 739-6017, or you could reach Mavis via e-mail, mahon@veraperlinsociety.ca.
     We would appreciate your consideration to provide your payroll services.
