Welcome To Gio's Cares
Founded in 1992, Gio’s Cares is administered by a volunteer board of directors. It also has a Goodwill Ambassador who works as part of the team. It has no paid staff.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of women, men, & children living with HIV/AIDS. The funds we raise go directly toward the agencies we serve.
Among those we work with are Nine Circles Community Health Centre, Sage House, Sunshine House, Health Sciences Centre, Artemis Housing Co-op, and House of Hesed. Through these and other agencies, we provide support for a food bank, a light meal program, and, especially, warm winter clothing and personal items. These organizations evaluate their clients’ needs in a confidential manner and are welcome to our support.
Unfortunately, the need often outweighs the resources. Gio’s Cares receives some financial donations but it's board and volunteers raise the majority of funds by holding fundraising activities such as a country & western-themed steak & corn roast and dance, lasagna dinners, spaghetti suppers, theme nights featuring various eras, car washes, garage sales, and silent auctions.
Donations of $10.00 or more are eligible for an official tax receipt.
We wish to thank you all for supporting us in our fundraising.
