“The Exchange, a Uniquely Caledon Experience”

by Chrissy Jarvie, Communications Lead

I’m always amazed by the kindness and generosity in Caledon. It shouldn’t be surprising, Caledon is a wonderful place to live and work, but sometimes the depth of kindness really hits home.

I recently heard a story of a young girl who asked her friends for snacks and food for her birthday. 103 lbs of food were collected and donated to CCS’ Food Support program at the Exchange (55 Healey Rd.). How incredible and heartwarming is that?!

The reality is, this is just one of the many amazing things that happen at the Exchange every day. From community groups to sports teams, corporate groups and schools there’s never a shortage of community spirit and good vibes. Come out and visit the Exchange, it’s an experience like no other.

The energy is contagious and the atmosphere is buzzing. People of all ages and stages learning, creating and connecting together. Looking for an amazing volunteer experience? It’s at the Exchange, just waiting for you.

What can you do:

Drop in with a donation of cash or gift cards – host a food drive or simply add a few items to your shopping list.

Donations are accepted and appreciated Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-4:30 pm. While you’re there, take a look around and talk to a member of our team about getting more involved. Connect with Kim D’Eri at 905-584-2300 ext. 202 or kderi@ccs4u.org to discuss food drives or most needed items.

If you’re a teacher, coach or community group leader, you can set up a group experience where participants can learn about food and the power of giving back! Kim creates amazing custom experiences.

If you’re an adult 55+, join our Health and Wellness Thursdays. Get active, learn, socialize, enjoy therapeutic recreation and creative arts and  crafts. Connect with Silvana Ferrari at 905-584- 2300 ext. 273 or sferrari@ccs4u.org to learn more.

Volunteer opportunities abound – join us for a variety of activities from cooking, to sorting donations or greeting guests at reception. Andrea Coles can help you get started 905-584-2300 ext. 277 or acoles@ccs4u.org.

Wonder how you’ll get there? Contact CCS Transportation at 905-584-2300 ext. 217, 218, 221, 264 to see if there is  program right for you.

This is just touching the surface. Visit and discover the Exchange for yourself. We look forward to seeing you there.
