  • Charitable Focus for 2020

    SARAH POCALUYKO MEMORIAL FOUNDATION

    Giving Back

    We have decided to start help create awareness for various charities that are close to our members. This year our focus is the Sarah Pocaluyko Memorial Foundation in support of Troy and Tracey Pocaluyko. Please take a moment and read about Sarah's story and think about making a donation to help Food Allergy Canada create more awareness and programs to support individuals and families living with food allergies.

    Sarah Pocaluyko Memorial Foundation

    The Foundation has been established in loving memory of our daughter Sarah, who passed away from an anaphylactic reaction on June 19th, 2018.

     

    Monies raised will be used to promote food allergy awareness through Food Allergy Canada, fund research into anaphylaxis and asthma through the Canadian Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Foundation and support the Trillium Gift of Life, as well as other charities in Sarah’s honour. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated and will help to ensure that grants to these charitable organizations can be made for many years to come.
