Giving Tuesday – please support our Aquatics department on November 28th

Tuesday, November 28th, is Giving Tuesday – a global day of charitable giving dedicated to compassion and collective action. Every dollar makes an impact, and when combined with the generosity of others, it can lead to transformative change.

This Giving Tuesday, we invite you to join us in raising $5,000 to support the safety and inclusion-focused work of our Aquatics department. Trico Centre’s Aquatics team delivers award-winning programming including SwimAbilities, a targeted class that helps local children and youth with special needs. Your support will help purchase important equipment and specialized training for our team to provide a safe and enjoyable aquatic experience for the entire Trico Centre community.

Making a difference is easy. You can help us any time by going to our donation page. On Tuesday, November 28th, we will also have a TipTap terminal at our Guest Services desk to accommodate tap debit or credit donations of $10, $20, or $50.

Here’s a testimonial from one of our SwimAbilities parents:

SwimAbilities allowed my special needs son to learn in a way that makes sense for him. The instructor was able to adapt lessons to his needs and having me in the water for 1:1 support was critical to his participation and success. I had very low expectations for what he would learn, but he’s doing quite well with some of the skills. – Dominika

It is the generosity of all of our community members who enable Trico Centre to continue to impact the lives of everyone who walks through our doors. Thank you for joining us in making Trico Centre a place where everyone can learn, grow, connect, and thrive!
