Lansdowne to Dress Purple, October 27

Every October, Children’s Aid Societies across Ontario raise awareness about the important role that individuals and communities play in supporting vulnerable children, youth, and families through the provincial Dress Purple Day campaign. This year, Dress Purple Day will take place on Friday, October 27, 2023.

Lansdowne we dress purple because...
Join Lansdowne Children's Centre in Dress Purple Day on Friday October 27

We all have a role to play in keeping children and youth safe and ask you to speak up for every child and youth’s right to safety and well-being in all areas of their lives. Not just physical safety and well-being – children and youth have the right to have their unique identity, which includes culture, race, sexual orientation, and gender identity, protected, and supported.

If you have a concern for the safety or well-being of a child or youth or know a family in need of support, please call Child and Family Services of Grand Erie at 1-888-753-8681.
