Are you an outgoing, personable, and organized individual who enjoys meeting people in our community? If so, we are looking for you! The Children's Aid Foundation of Halton, that raises funds for the Halton Children's Aid Society, is seeking dynamic and energetic individuals to work with other team members to identify and solicit donations from potential donors and sponsors in our community. Secured donations highlighting businesses within our community will be showcased at our annual 2018 Stardust Gala "From Halton with Love" (April 21, 2018).

These funds allow the Halton CAS to provide additional services that are not covered by government funding, enriching the lives of abused and neglected children.
With your help children and youth are put on the path to success. You’re the ONE making a difference and we thank you!
