Mr. Speaker, today I would like to talk about an organization that is leading by example and showcasing to people in Mississauga and the country how warmth, kindness and empathy help us build an ideal community.
As a non-profit charitable organization, Community Living Mississauga supports individuals with intellectual disabilities, to ensure their social life is meaningfully improved. Over 3,000 Mississaugans have received opportunities through over 450 employers who provide support and care to individuals who need it most.
Community Living Mississauga will be hosting its annual tribute dinner. Frank Giannone will be honoured for his philanthropic efforts and contributions toward the city. The goal of this event, along with honouring Frank, will be to raise funds so that young people with intellectual disabilities can attend summer programming.
As a big supporter of Community Living Mississauga, I want to thank all the donors, volunteers, staff members and management for their great work.
