Dress Purple Day – October 27th, 2022

Dress Purple to show families that help is available and no one is alone

Peterborough, ON – (Oct 27, 2022) 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 Thursday, October 27, 2022.

The Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society is calling on our local communities to wear purple as we celebrate the community organizations that are part of the circle of care that supports the wellbeing of our children, youth, and families.  By wearing purple, you are sharing the message that help is available and no one is alone.

“Dress Purple Day offers an opportunity to remind our local communities that the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society works together with many other social service providers to help children, youth, and families facing challenges.” says Jennifer McLauchlan, Executive Director of the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society. “We are wearing purple today to show children, youth, and families that we care and are here to help.”

Dress purple day brings awareness to the early help and supportive services available to families facing challenges and to the prevention and early intervention work Children’s Aid Societies do to support families, connect them with local supports and keep children and youth at home.

Join us today and dress in purple to show families that help is available and no one is alone.  Share your photos by tagging with #IDressPurpleBecause
