Community Care

We need community care to thrive.

There are many ways we can be there for one another from providing services for caregivers and seniors, to promoting mental and physical health and helping those in our community to develop skills and resiliency. We are proud to support initiatives that uplift the health, social services, and elders in our community. Community care can improve people's individual well-being.

Coop Gym Santé Sutton

Coop Gym Santé Sutton

2022 Project: Annual fundraising to support the development of the Coop gym santé Sutton and consolidate our financial situation in order to continue and improve our mission to provide quality physical training services adapted to the community of Sutton and its surroundings. (Anglophones and Francophones)

About: Coop gym santé Sutton was born in 2014 when the five members of the launching committee had the objective of offering a different product than those found in run-of-mill gyms. They did not want to simply be different, but to give body to their dream, which remains to:

  • facilitate, through physical activity, the taking ownership of health matters by one and all in our community;
  • offer members and subscribers an environment conducive to the birth of a social network.
