The "Colour Your Cares Away" project is a youth - to - youth, community effort involving schools in South Simcoe, hospitals in the catchment area of South Simcoe and the South Simcoe Arts Council.  Through the contributions of students our goal is to strengthen comfort levels and the well-being of young patients, their siblings, family members as well as staff.  The colouring book which will be created from black line drawings submitted by local students, will be distributed freely at the discretion of hospital staff at Stevenson Memorial Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital and Southlake Regional Health Centre. Our combined efforts are intended to strengthen community service and support for youth.
