Due to the current Public Health Guidelines surrounding COVID-19, we have chosen to adapt the plans for The Big Give and provide an experience that is safe for everyone in the community.


The week leading up to Saturday June 6th, 2020



This year, The Big Give will have two components; 1. Family-friendly video episodes will be available during the week leading up to June 6 that will include crafts, story time, and more. 2. Handmade Thank You cards that will be brought to essential workers and front-line staff in Barrhaven.


Everyone is encouraged to create Thank You cards for essential workers and front line staff. Thank You card templates are available below for download. You are welcome to share a message of encouragement inside the card.

Completed Thank You cards can be dropped off at Cedarview from Wednesday, May 27 - Sunday, May 31 from 10 am - 6 pm daily. Place your completed cards in the large plastic bin located outside the Chapel entrance doors. Cards will be distributed to essential workers and front line staff in Barrhaven on Saturday, June 6.
