The Georgian South Masonic District, in collaboration with the Masonic Foundation of Ontario, proudly announces a significant contribution of $21,250 to CMHA SCB. This donation underscores their unwavering commitment to promoting mental health and fostering well-being within the local community.

Under the visionary leadership of District Deputy Grand Master Right Worshipful Brother Terry P. Villeneuve, the Georgian South Masonic District rallied together to raise the substantial donation, which was further amplified by the Masonic Foundation of Ontario's support.

Freemasonry, the world's oldest and largest fraternal organization, unites individuals in pursuit of personal development and community "upliftment." Guided by principles of brotherly love, charity, and truth, Freemasons from diverse backgrounds including leaders, professionals, and everyday citizens, converge to advance self-improvement, family values, and positive societal impact.

"We are honoured to collaborate with CMHA Simcoe County, advancing mental health advocacy," remarked The Right Worshipful Terry P Villenueve District Deputy Grand Master of Georgian South District A.F and A.M.

This substantial contribution will empower CMHA Simcoe County to expand their mental health and addiction programs, enhance community awareness, and strengthen overall well-being.
