 Meet Riley Hoben 
Seven-year-old Riley’s life began quite a bit different than most. It began on a cottage road, delivered by her father.
After calling an ambulance, they were able to instruct Kim (her mother) on how to best help Riley while she waited for their arrival. Finally, the family was taken to the nearest hospital. The hospital was not equipped for infant care, so they kept the newborn warm with light and hot saline bags.
Soon, Riley’s sugars were dropping. If they continued to drop, Kim was told Riley would begin to have seizures. Luckily, the hospital was able to call a neighbour, a retired neo-natal nurse to come and administer a needle to get her sugars back up, saving her life.

Believers & Current Happenings

Why I Give
6-year-old Lily, one of our youngest donors, has one kind heart. This year, when Lily’s birthday rolled around, she made a very special decision. Instead of asking for gifts for her birthday, she asked for her friends to make a donation to Grandview Children’s Centre.
Campbell Children's School Update
This month, the kids are having fun celebrating winter! During recess, students and teachers alike are building snowmen, tobogganing and jumping around in the snow. They'll be sad to see it melt this spring.

Current Campaign

That's a wrap on our Holiday Campaign, raising $65,900. We want to thank everyone who donated, with a special thanks to Glenn and Lorrie Willson for matched giving. Thank you for believing in the magic of Grandview. Each one of you has made a difference. 


Parent Tips

Don’t toss those broken crayons! Colouring and drawing with crayons is a great tool for developing fine motor skills, but crayons always seem to break.  Keep the broken pieces, as colouring with small crayons help kids develop a more mature grasp and strengthen the small muscles of their hands.”
