Shine A Light
Residents and business owners are being asked to participate in the “Shine A Light On Community Living” campaign throughout May.
“The purpose of this event is to support the people living with intellectual disabilities,” says Community Living Glengarry. “We ask that you join us in participating in this initiative by changing your building’s exterior lights to blue and green in support of the Community Living movement. Together, we can create a powerful example of inclusion that will shine not only in Glengarry, but throughout many other communities around the province.” Schools have been invited to have students wear green or blue on a Friday in May. Posters have been distributed with the “Shine A Light On Glengarry” logo to be displayed in windows of businesses.
Green and blue wreathes that can be placed on doors can be purchased at the Community Living office, 332 Macdonald Blvd., Alexandria or by calling 613-577-2740. Green and blue light bulbs are available for purchase at Home Hardware. Community Living can help those needing support to buy the lights.
