Mental Health Week 2012 – May 7 – 12
The Treasures team takes Mental Health week very seriously. We see it as an opportunity to continue our mission of creating mental health awareness and to celebrate recovery. The photos below speak volumes about our commitment to speaking openly and candidly about mental illness. Our President and Chair of the Board is Carol Thompson, a tireless mental health advocate and an active volunteer at Treasures.
The following pictures illustrate the enthusiastic participation from our volunteers in Mental Health Week.
25th Anniversary Celebration
Treasures was incorporated as a registered charity and open its doors back on February 1st, 1986. For almost 26 years Treasures has been serving the Richmond Hill community selling gently used clothing, linens, house wares, books, jewellery and collectables at reasonable prices. Treasures also provides a supportive workplace for individuals in mental health recovery to engage in meaningful and worthwhile work.
On February 1st, 2011 we celebrated this important milestone with our customers, our volunteers, our local politicians and the media. A fine celebration it was!
