TORONTO, Dec. 3, 2019 /3BL Media/ - Today, on International Day of Persons with Disabilities, a day to celebrate the vast contributions and achievements of people with disabilities, the CNIB Foundation received a gift of $700,000 from Scotiabank to help create a brighter future for youth with sight loss in the Greater Toronto Area.
For youth who are blind or partially sighted, moving through early adulthood can bring unique challenges on a practical, emotional and social level. Scotiabank's support will help the CNIB Foundation develop and expand programming to ensure young people with sight loss reach their infinite potential through every stage of their education, fuel their ambitions and champion their equal participation in the world of work.
