The THRIVE Child Development Centre would like to extend a huge thank you to local CIBC Private Wealth Management Investment Advisors, Adam Slumskie, Greg Zahn, and their Intrinsic Financial Group team; as their participation in CIBC’s Miracle Day, resulted in a donation of $25,000 to the THRIVE Child Development Centre Foundation!
Miracle Day is a tradition where CIBC Private Wealth advisors across Canada donate a portion of their fees, accumulated locally, to the children’s charity of their choosing. Adam, Greg and their entire team are very passionate about giving back to the community where they live and work. They feel it is very important to help the community and especially the children of Sault Ste. Marie, as they are our future.
Christianne Monico, CEO – THRIVE/THRIVE Foundation explains, “This donation of $25,000 will support our Foundation in assisting families with otherwise unfunded adaptive equipment, medical-related transportation, enhanced programming for children with diverse abilities and special needs; as well as off-setting unfunded medical specialty clinic costs that ensure local treatment by visiting experts. THRIVE services almost 1500 children annually via almost 20 000 visits in the most appropriate setting to meet their needs; however, demands continue to exceed funding and resources. CIBC Private Wealth Management’s donation will go a long way to help THRIVE continue to provide outstanding Paediatric care and empower children and families to reach beyond what is expected, toward the potential to the extraordinary!”
In appreciation of this generous donation, THRIVE Child Development Centre will be naming our “Exploration Room” in honour of CIBC Private Wealth Management’s Intrinsic Financial Group and their generous Advisors, without whom this donation would not be possible. The THRIVE Exploration Room is used to provide therapeutic treatment and support to our THRIVE kids and their families. At THRIVE, the vision is: “A future of possibilities!”.
