Canadian Tire Jump Start

A community-based charitable program from the Canadian Tire Foundation. The program is offered to children from low-income families and it creates opportunities for children to participate in organized sports or recreational activities such as hockey, soccer or swimming.

Participation in this program and activities help children build self-esteem while improving social skills, concentration and character.

Community Care works to identify families for St. Catharines and Thorold that will benefit from the Canadian Tire Jump Start Program and is pleased to act as a local liaison in connecting families to this fine foundation.
