THE SILVER HAMMER FUND

A distraction from the confusion of daily life.  Offering free woodworking camps and creative courses to children living through trauma.

 

SPONSORSHIP

Sponsoring a child allows them to attend a full Rock Paper Scissors Co. program, without their family experiencing the financial stress of programming fees or daily child care during their personal hardship. Whether their immediate family member is going through chemotherapy treatments or the family is experiencing grief, children will have their minds filled with creative adventures that will last them a lifetime of happy memories.

Send a child to a 1 week camp $300


Send a child to a 6 week program (12hrs) $250


Sponsor a full week of camp $2800 (10 Children)


Sponsor a 6 week program (12hrs) $2300 (10 Children)

 

DONATIONS

We are always happy to accept donations in any denomination. Cash donations help us to provide the proper materials needed for each child to take home the projects they build at each program. They provide healthy snacks, water bottles and treats during class. They also provide safety equipment, and help with the cost of utilities in our camp and course work space.

Donations to The Silver Hammer Fund can be made via E-transfer, cash, Visa, Mastercard or check. If you would like to make a donation please get in touch, or stop by the stuido.

VOLUNTEER

Hosting our little friends adds so much joy to our lives, they love to soak up our attention, show us how creative they can be, and are always happy to receive hugs! That means the more the merrier when it comes to our program leaders! If you love getting messy, and want to be a part of our mission we are happy to have you! We provide an upbeat, creative environment for children who are experiencing hard times at home. We hope they will look back on this stage in their life and remember the good times, and if we are a part of that, our mission is complete.

*Vulnerable Sector Checks are required by all volunteers*

 

OUR VALUED PARTNERSHIPS

We would not be where we are today without the support of our incredible sponsors. Hundreds of children have already joined our programs for free, and with our community's support, we know there are hundreds of more to come in the future. To partner with The Silver Hammer Fund, contact us today.

VINTAGE COFFEE ROASTERS

Vintage proudly sends children to full week camp programs, we are so honoured to have them on our side... and don't even get us started on those cheese scones!

TEGS TOOLS

TEGS Tools provides our campers with so many of the tools they require, as well as uniforms and camper sponsorships, our relationship with TEGS goes beyond business and we are so grateful that we share the same values.

BODYMED BOUTIQUE

BodyMed Boutique provides crafting supplies that are constantly used by all of our campers.  They support The Silver Hammer Fund with gift cards to our local hardware store, and they are both a support line and inspiration to this program.  Providing women with free post surgical cancer garments, BodyMed knows families who need us the most.

THE COTTON FACTORY

The Cotton Factory not only provides us with our incredible class space, their team is constantly stopping by to support and enourage each one of our campers.  They also provide us with supplies for our camp lemonade stand!  The Silver Hammer Fund would not exist without their love and support!
