ABOUT THE DURHAM REGION CHAPTER

 

ProAction’s Durham Chapter works with the Durham Region Police Service to fund programs, benefiting local youth and police. Our partnership began in 2007, using the Toronto Chapter structure for its foundation, and has grown into funding almost 20 programs per year, totaling approximately $45,000 in grants each year. The Durham Region Chapter has been steadily growing since its inception and continues to maintain and expand a strong and dedicated Council and police officer partnership.

Durham Region Featured Program

PC Rebecca Ruttan designed the Expression Painting program for under-resourced kids who struggle with social, physical and/or mental health issues and would benefit from a calming and creative experience.

Twice a week during lunch, PC Ruttan supported these program participants by providing ideas and assistance with art technique to create their own beautiful pieces of art. At the end of this four month program, the young participants produced their own masterpieces that were proudly displayed on the walls of their school.

Several of the participants donated their art to be sold in a silent auction. The pieces were of such great quality that they raised several hundred dollars for charity. Congratulations to our young aspiring artists for their great accomplishments and contribution to making their community a better place.
