Black Youth in Simcoe County Project Youth in Simcoe County Project<p>​Shelly Skinner of <a href="">Making Change across Simcoe County</a>, is a local non-profit focused on diversity and inclusion, and is part of the <strong>Uplifting Black Youth in Simcoe County project</strong>. You can follow both Shelly and MCASC on social media through Facebook, Instagram, etc. (@activistshelly, @makingchangesc). </p><p><strong>Black Youth in Simcoe County Project:</strong></p><p>Making Change across Simcoe County is a local non-profit working with the community to deliver "care packages" to black school-aged youth (JK-12) all through Simcoe County. As our youth sit at home isolating and navigating online school, the stress and anxiety of the global pandemic are compounded by recent events that have shown a spotlight on anti-black racism. The goal of this initiative is to deliver care packages of donated "new" items such as art supplies, journals, books, gift cards, letters of solidarity, and other support materials (full list below) directly to the homes of black youth and let them know that they are cared for, seen, and supported by the community.<br></p><p>MCASC has an application form <a href="">on their website</a> where parents of black school-aged youth (JK-12) can apply for a care package for their children. Applications simply ask for contact information (parent name, address, phone number, email) and number of children. On their website, there is also a volunteer form for the project, as MCASC needs volunteers to donate items, collect donations, build care packages, and deliver care packages. There is also a <a href="">Facebook group</a> for the project, and MCASC is accepting financial donations via e-transfer (<a href=""></a>).<br></p><p><strong>Current list of "new" items (</strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>not</strong></span><strong> accepting gently used for this project) to donate for school-aged children JK-12:</strong></p><ul><li>Letters of solidarity and support </li><li>Poems (letters & poems can be sent to <a href=""></a> to handle printing & distribution)</li><li>Greeting cards</li><li>Musical instruments</li><li>Board games</li><li>Books with a main character who is a POC</li><li>Art supplies</li><li>Journals</li><li>Spa care products</li><li>Makeup for POC skin tone</li><li>Haircare for POC hair</li><li>Ice cream/Frozen yogurt gift cards</li><li>Sporting goods</li><li>Electronics accessories (chargers, earbuds)</li><li>Plants</li><li>Baking supplies/baked goods</li><li>Jewelry</li><li>Candy</li><li>Lego</li><li>Beanie Boos/Stuffies<br></li></ul><p><br></p>
