Our Programs

We offer a wide range of quality community programming to the Riverside South neighbourhood.

We are a volunteer run non-profit and our programs are made possible by generous community donations and our hard working volunteers. We are looking for community donations  and sponsors to help fund our programs.

If you would like to make a donation, please email info@riversidesouth.org.
