Community Family Services of Ontario’s Plant-a-Tree Fundraising Received Community Support

May 30, 2022 (Scarborough) – Community Family Services of Ontario (CFSO) is hosting its sixth “Plant-A-Tree” community fundraising event at Saigeon Trail in Richmond Hill on Saturday, June 18, 2022, to fundraise for ongoing programs while helping environmental conservation.

For the past three decades, CFSO has served Cantonese, Mandarin, and Vietnamese-speaking communities. CFSO believes in individual and family contribution to a sustainable society.  The donation would help CFSO continues its mission to build a safe and harmonious community by providing professional counselling, settlement, disabilities, and special needs services to individuals and families in need.

Dr. Anna Victoria Wong, Executive Director of CFSO, explained that, “CFSO aims to create a sustainable impact for the future generation, through environmental education and community involvement. The donation will help CFSO to provide services on mental health, poverty, and newcomer settlement services during pandemic.  We plan to plant 175 trees, and raise $40,000 toward frontline services, which are in dire needs after the pandemic.  We are grateful for the support by the City of Richmond Hill, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, volunteers, donors, and sponsors to make this meaningful event happen.”

Castro Liu, Ward 3 councillor, City of Richmond Hill attended the event and showed gratitude for CFSO’s ongoing effort to East Asian Ontarians. “I am proud to support CFSO’s tree planting fundraising event to increase their service capacity, and am grateful for their conservation work for Richmond Hill,” Liu said.

Tilda Hui, President of the Board of Directors of CFSO thanked community partners for their support. “With 30 years of experience under its belt, CFSO is well positioned to grow to meet the increasing demands of the community. Continuous support from the community is critical to make this move a reality.  The Board is deeply appreciative of the support from Simon Chu, the Title Sponsors this year.”
