“Dear Collingwood Friends…”


We are all aware of the tragic circumstances that millions of Syrians are experiencing as they are forced to leave their homeland. Families are virtually leaving everything behind in Syria, and buying dangerous boat ‘rides’, walking hundreds of miles and taking foreign buses; to flee war torn Syria for a better life. Canadians can help.

We all feel somewhat helpless in our ability to assist those fleeing Syria, based on the number of refugees and their plight. But…each of us can help in our own small way by donating to the Collingwood Friends of Syrian Family Sponsorship.


Your donation to The Syrian Family Sponsorship Fund will be routed through a special donation page provided by our partnering organization, Elephant Thoughts Educational Outreach.

Elephant Thoughts is a locally-based, international charity celebrated for its award-winning educational and humanitarian work across Canada and around the world.

Elephant Thoughts‘ generous support of this project enables us to provide you with an income tax receipt for donations of $20 or more.

Thank you to Elephant Thoughts… and, thank You!
