Block Parent Week
CELEBRATING 36 YEARS IN CHATHAM-KENT !!
National Block Parent® Week – October 20th to 26th, 2013
“Block Parent®: Celebrate our Past; Become our Future!”
The Block Parent® Program of Canada celebrates 45 years of providing a safety network of volunteers for people in need!
As the longest running safety program in Canada, our easily recognizable sign, with its red and white logo, symbolizes the safety and security over 25 000 volunteers provide to those in need. It also symbolizes the close relationship our volunteers have with police and educators to provide this immediate assistance.
All members of our Block Parent® families over the age of 12 are carefully screened by the police as are all employees in our Business Block Parent® Programs.
This Canadian program was created in 1968 by individuals who saw a need in our society. And the need is still there-now more than ever! During National Block Parent® Week, we encourage families and small businesses to become a Block Parent® and help us to continue to protect communities coast to coast.
