The Mississauga Blues Rugby Club is one of the many charities that volunteer at Rama Gaming House and in exchange they provide us with funding to help support our youth program. Cost is often a barrier to kids getting involved with sports and our partnership with Rama allows us to offer the lowest registration dues across the GTA. Our most recent purchases with these funds helped enable us to purchase much needed uniforms for our U14 boys team.
Currently with 49 charities our groups are always looking for members to volunteer and work assigned bingo sessions for them! If you have a couple of spare hours a month and want to be a part of making our Community a better place, send me an email.
Royal Canadian Legion Branch #139 -Streetsville is always out in the community making a difference. Whether it is bringing us beautiful items to remember the past or helping out others in the community all with funds raised by their members through Charitable Gaming while volunteering at Rama Gaming House Mississsauga
Coming here, the first thing was hope. This space gave me an opportunity to grow, push myself towards a positive path. Living here, you have to come out of your comfort zone to become better. The living space was uncomfortable because of the size however, it made me make a plan for myself and the children. This also made me realize I cannot be on government help for the rest of my life. Armagh assisted me in starting a school program to get myself back on her feet. Armagh gave me the confidence to move forward. Armagh was the only place that was open when every other door was shut.
Going to a shelter was hope but coming to Armagh was beyond my thoughts.
The team was me feel the confidence I needed. Especially meeting with Jessica as everything she was able to do to support her, the mother, the sister, and the heart.
For someone to believe in me, I was able to look at myself as I was always told that I should not think of myself and only my children matter. I was able to see that in order to take care of my children, I need to take care of myself first. With staff, I was able to see this and understand I can take care of myself.
The gifts and items provided to me throughout my time here was amazing and made me feel good to know that I was able to get the credit for providing these things. Everything Armagh was able to provide to me made my life better and less stressful.
Streetsville Pipes & Drums
Streetsville Pipes and Drums honoured our fallen veterans on Remembrance Day, November 11, 2021 Unfortunately the 2021 Remembrance Day Parade through Streetsville was cancelled because the City did not permit parades due to Covid, but that did not deter the band from parading through the Legion parking lot to the Cenotaph on the Legion grounds. We are able to perform these public duties through fundraising at RAMA Gaming which supports the cost of uniforms and equipment for the band.
Letter from family:
We would like to sincerely thank the sponsors and donors who have helped our family through BGC Peel in 2021 with the programs and resources we desperately need.
We greatly appreciate your kindness. We are grateful for the time and effort put in to ensure we
would have an extra special year and especially so our daughter can have the social experience she was missing because of Covid.
We wish and pray that each of you will receive many blessings over the coming holiday season.
We pray that your cupboards and fridge will always be full and your hearts filled with joy.
You really don’t understanding what this means to our family. Being able to provide for our child, give them health meals and make it so we are
able to sit down at the table and have a true Thanksgiving dinner.
Kind and warm regards,
Parents from BGC Peel Family Program
On Wednesday February 26, 2021, our Streetsville Rotary Club members were excited to join the Eden Food for Change and the Streetsville United Church representatives as they commissioned the new satellite location for the foodbank in Streetsville. The club presented a cheque of $1500 to support in the cost of buying fridges that were planned to be delivered later that day. This expansion would help enhance the service to families in need in the Streetsville area and beyond; especially as many households continue to struggle under the COVID lockdown measures and loss of employment. The Rotary Club of Mississauga Streetsville is pleased to be part of this great initiative and would like to continue to recognize the Rama Gaming House for their ongoing commitment to a healthy community in Mississauga.
