Our Club

Our Service Club organization has been in operation in Greater Moncton since 2001, and nationally since 1922. Our Club mission, through the eyes of a child we serve to build a stronger community, is more than just another tagline, it is our guiding principle. We don’t just raise and distribute funds; we often get involved and invest sweat-equity with our charity partners.  Whether it is charitable donations, helping a family going through a crisis situation, swinging a hammer or painting a fence at a local charity, we are driven to help children do what’s important for them: grow up healthy, have fun and live life to the fullest. The activities we undertake and the causes we support always focus on improving the lives of young people and their families in our local community.  We are proud to say that 100% of all the funds we raise stay local.

In our support for children and families we take a unique approach from other important organizations in the community.  For example, rather than buy medical equipment for our hospitals, we focus on the small things that often get overlooked, like toys, games and family room furnishings that make a difficult time more bearable for the sick children and their families.  We keep many Christmas trees for needy families from being bare on Christmas morning by sending out food, stockings and presents. We buy renovation materials and provide the labour to help some of our local charities keep from falling apart.

We are a chapter of the Canadian Progress Club (http://www.progressclub.ca/) and as such we are also committed to our charitable affiliation with the Special Olympics, where at the national level we are the largest non-corporate sponsors of the event.  Our commitments at the national level are covered through our membership dues, not local sponsorships. We are not a charity, but a registered, not-for-profit corporation and as such accountability and transparency are very important to us. Financial statements for the Club are available upon request.
