Lowe’s chooses BIAWE as Heroes recipient

We have more good news. Lowe’s on Tecumseh and Lauzon Parkway have chosen BIAWE to be the recipient of its “Heroes”event.

Money raised through their fundraising efforts started July 27 and through August and part of September will be donated to BIAWE for a NEW PROGRAM we will be offering in the fall/winter. (Details will follow)

The first event was a car wash in July.

In August there will be a jail and bail fundraiser on the weekends, more barbecues and an opportunity to donate a toonie at the cash register and get your name placed on their wall.

Here’s how you can help. We need volunteers for these fundraisers. At the jail and bail we need 2 people during each time slot – one to stand inside the jail being held for some crime or misdemeanour and another to solicit funds to either keep the person in jail or pay to get them out. Doesn’t this sound fun? Patronize this store, as they are helping us.

The best thing is during all these activities we can tell people about BIAWE and promote its programs and services. It’s a great outreach opportunity. Contact us to volunteer.

Vote for us!

We’re thrilled to announce that the Brain Injury Association of Windsor and Essex County has been nominated for the “Community Brain Injury Association of the Year” by the Ontario Brain Injury Association and PIA Law.

This award is to recognize the non-profit brain injury association which provides exemplary service to the brain injury community and continues to find innovative means to support brain injury survivors and their families.

The winner of the award will be determined by the following criteria:
Strong advocacy and positive outcomes for its clients, years of service, credentials, number of public votes and supporting testimonials.

So, here’s where you can help. There will be an opportunity for you to vote for the best brain injury association. Voting starts on August 6 and goes to September 6. The winner will be announced on September 11.

On the voter’s page you can provide a testimonial. Tell them how BIAWE has helped you or your family on your journey to wellness, provided you with support when you needed it or anything else you can think of. This will be a key consideration in the decision making process but not the determining factor.

The winner will be chosen by the Nomination Panel consisting of two members from OBIA and one member of PIA Law.
