TCAC Members:  I would like to share with you how proud I am of your dedication towards making this association grow. During the past two years we have been able to connect so many community members through events and were able to gather feedback from members on the direction of TCAC.

This new leadership structure is a reflection of the feedback we heard from members. For the next few years, this leadership will focus on diversity, Youth and Community engagement and entertainment. Thank you for those members who stepped up  to take on these roles, it is through you that we will be able to achieve our objectives.

It is through these strategies that we will be able  to not only promote but preserve our rich and diverse culture.

Help Us Raise Funds
Donating Clothes, shoes & More

Dear Fellow Members,
As discussed in the 2020 AGM, just like any other associations in town, TCAC has to be more creative than ever, during these tough times, when it comes to Community Engagements and Fundraising.
Today, the Leadership Team would like to introduce a FUNDrive Initiative, where your families’ gently used household items could be used to raise funds for the Community Association to strive.
Please collect the items and separate them as clarified in the attached poster. TCAC delivery date to Value Village is scheduled for April 24, 2021. Meanwhile, the committee involved would like to keep track on what is available before then.
To reach a target of $500, it has been estimated that at least 150 big garbage bin bags of items weighing 18lb (8kg) should be collected. Please inform any leader who is close to you whenever you manage to fill up a bag or two. If you are new in town and don’t know anybody please use the numbers provided on the poster to reach out.
Thanks for your support,
Juma Omary,
(TCAC General Secretary)
