Karas­sik Foun­da­tion con­tin­ues to sup­port the com­mu­nity!

Montreal Times - - NEWS -

In or­der to carry out its mis­sion suc­cess­fully, SunYouth re­lies pri­mar­ily on the gen­eros­ity of pri­vate donors, such as the Charlotte and Leo Karas­sik Foun­da­tion. For a fifth year in a row, the Foun­da­tion re­newed its sup­port with a $100,000 con­tri­bu­tion. This gen­er­ous do­na­tion will go to­wards many dif­fer­ent pro­grams that Sun Youth of­fers, in­clud­ing the Crime Vic­tims Fund that acts as a sup­ple­ment to the aid pro­vided by gov­ern­ment to the vic­tims of vi­o­lent crimes and their fam­i­lies. Since its cre­ation in 2006, it has be­come a very im­por­tant pro­gram for Sun Youth’s Crime Preven­tion di­vi­sion. Any el­i­gi­ble per­son may, de­pend­ing on their fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion, re­ceive as­sis­tance for ex­penses such as rent, elec­tric­ity, heat­ing, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals and trans­porta­tion.The rest of the funds will also go to­wards many other pro­grams in­clud­ing; the Chil­dren’s Help pro­gram that of­fers fam­i­lies ma­te­rial as­sis­tance, fi­nan­cial help, moral sup­port and fol­low up, the Home De­liv­ery ser­vice for peo­ple fac­ing re­duced mo­bil­ity and so­cial iso­la­tion, the Bike Pa­trol and the Day Camp.The Charlotte and Leo Karas­sik Foun­da­tion’s con­tri­bu­tion will help Sun Youth main­tain those pro­grams and im­prove the com­mu­nity's well-be­ing.

The Charlotte and Leo Karas­sik Foun­da­tion was cre­ated in or­der to con­tinue the pos­i­tive and gen­er­ous legacy of Charlotte and Leo Karas­sik, both of whom have since passed away.The Foun­da­tion funds other reg­is­tered char­i­ties ded­i­cated to the wel­fare of in­di­vid­u­als and com­mu­ni­ties. Fol­low­ing the death of Mr. Karas­sik in 2007, Mrs. Karas­sik pre­s­e­lected seven or­ga­ni­za­tions to ben­e­fit in per­pe­tu­ity from the gen­eros­ity of the Foun­da­tion, be­fore she passed away her­self in 2012. Other ben­e­fi­cia­ries in­clude hospitals, uni­ver­si­ties, el­der­care cen­ters, sports or­ga­ni­za­tions, sum­mer camps and more. Sun Youth is proud to be among these re­cip­i­ents.
