On-going Initiatives

In supporting SpecKids Unlimited, you will help ensure that more children in our community have the opportunities that any child in Hamilton should rightly expect and deserve. Funds donated to SpecKids Unlimited support the following initiatives.

  • The Summer Camp Fund – which sends kids at risk to a week-long, fun-filled adventure at camp
  • Jeff Dickins Memorial Award – bursaries for students who excel in academics, athletics and community involvement.
  • Kids in the Community – our employee-driven campaign, which relies on support from our generous sponsors, to fund a variety of initiatives in the community designed to improve the lives of children in need.

For more information or to make a donation, contact Jane Allison at 905-526-3221 or jallison@thespec.com or Cheryl Stepan at 905-526-2439 or cstepan@thespec.com. Fund is managed by the Hamilton Community Foundation.
