The Loughborough Christmas & Emergency Relief Committee (LC&ERC) is a registered charity founded in 1988 on the tradition of neighbours helping neighbours. Funded entirely by gifts from our community, we provide approximately 100 local families a year with holiday food baskets and/or emergency financial assistance to help them cope with unexpected crises such as fire, sudden death or utility disconnection.
In cooperation with the Alzheimer Society of Kingston, there is a monthly support group held here the last Thursday from 7 - 9 pm of each month. Education sessions for professional caregivers and volunteers are planned annually.

New Leaf Link is based in South Frontenac Township to serve a population of developmentally disabled adults that, after completing high school, is largely forgotten by our social support systems. Among others, our programs emphasize two major aspects of living and learning: ARTS (e.g. music, drama and information technologies) and HEALTHY LIVING (e.g. eating wisely, moving naturally and being socially connected).
