Just as the Residential Energy Hub makes living in a cleaner world possible, RoseWater Energy is helping change our community for the better in other ways.
We believe that corporate citizenship speaks to everything we do, from the products and services we provide, to our business practices and community engagement. That's why for the last decade we have sought to bring attention and much needed financial help to The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), specifically The Learning Disabilities Research Program.
We can't do this alone, so we invite you to join us in our efforts to improve the literacy skills of thousands of children and adolescents in the Greater Toronto region as well as across the world.
Our annual Gala occurs around October or November, so please stay tuned to this page for details. For any questions, or to find out ways to get involved, please feel free to reach out to us.
Details Coming Soon!
The Learning Disabilities Research Program (LDRP) team has been working with struggling readers for over twenty-five years and has developed intensive research-based programs aimed at remediating the reading deficits of children in grades 1 through 12. It is an unfortunate fact that reading disabilities are the most common childhood disorder affecting approximately 120,000 school age-children in the province of Ontario.
By providing intensive, systematic evidence-based reading instruction to disabled readers, the LDRP has been able to dramatically improve the reading abilities of many children and adolescents and equip them with the skills they will need for academic and occupational success. With improved literacy skills, these children and adolescents also increase their chances of living with optimal physical and mental health, of forming healthy families, of attaining financial security, and contributing to the society in which they live.
Dinner And Auction
The cost of the dinner gala is typically $375.00, which includes a four course meal. As well, an auction is held throughout the evening and will showcase many valuable and interesting items and services generously donated by supporters. If you are interested in donating, please contact us.
Research is an integral part of SickKids' mission to improve the health of children, and through your support and participation the scientists, psychologists, and teachers of the LDRP can continue to meet the learning needs of children at risk and to develop the best effective intervention programs possible. To further this cause, a direct donation can also be made if desired. We'd love to see you at this fun and exciting event, but direct donations can be made to SickKids by visiting http://www.sickkidsfoundation.com/.
