The Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation (TJSF) is pleased to announce it has donated $14,000 to the Halton Learning Foundation (HLF), with the funds being directed to four elementary and two high schools in Milton in support of school initiatives such as mental health, breakfast programs, literacy and inclusive classrooms.
“I am absolutely thrilled the TJSF is able to support and help spread awareness on these important school initiatives”, said Tiger Jeet Singh Jr., President of the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation. “This is also our way of showing gratitude to each of the schools for their wonderful support of our foundation’s annual Miracle on Main Street toy drive charity event held this past December in support of McMaster Children’s Hospital, Halton Learning Foundation, SickKids, Halton Women’s Place and Salvation Army. As Ambassador of the Halton Learning Foundation, we are looking forward to taking a proactive role in the future to helping other schools that require financial assistance where government funding falls short.”
“We are thrilled to have the support of the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation as our partner with HLF”, said Lesley Mansfield, Executive Director of the Halton Learning Foundation. “Together, we are working to ensure financial barriers to education are removed for students in the Halton District School Board. With one in ten children living at or below the poverty line in Halton, these funds will help keep them engaged at school, focused on their studies but more importantly, make them feel like part of the community.”
Tiger Jeet Singh, and Tiger Jeet Sing Jr were named HLF Ambassadors in November, 2016.
