TPAB office update

Due to the lack of staff and volunteers, the Twins Plus Association of Brampton office will be temporarily closed until further notice. 
At this time the Spring/Summer Kidzz to Kidz SuperSale is not confirmed to go ahead as scheduled.  Although we have had a couple volunteers offer to help plan the Sale, we are still understaffed.  For a more experienced volunteer who has been involved in the Sale planning before – the Sale might be easier to take-on; but for a newcomer to the Sale Committee, it cannot be a one-man operation.  There is a lot of work that goes into it ahead of time to pull it all off on the big day.  This would also involve training and instruction before-hand and unfortunately we do not have the volunteers to do that with a newcomer.
All Social Events are also on hold for now, beginning with this Friday's Coffee Night.  There is nobody available to be the face of TPAB at the Coffee Night this Friday as that person has stepped down and I am not able to attend due to other commitments.  If you were planning on attending and would like to represent TPAB that night, please let me know and we can go from there. 
I would like to thank those of you who contacted me the last couple of weeks to offer some of your time.  Although it is so very much appreciated – the most needed volunteer positions were not filled.  I appreciate that all of us are very busy with our families and understand this all too well, but without more volunteers the TPAB office will have to run on an as-needed basis.
Email and phone messages will be checked periodically and dealt with as time, staff and the urgency of the matter arises.   I will continue to be a liaison for Multiple Births Canada as well and would be happy to direct you to the resources available through MBC for your specific needs.
Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions or concerns.
Yours Sincerely,
Nina Garcia
Twins Plus Association of Brampton
