The Kenora Association for Community Living is looking for local businesses to "Light It Up!" in support of National Disability Employment Awareness Month!
The Light it Up campaign kicks off today (October 20), and the KACL encourages us to light up our businesses in purple and blue to celebrate the power of inclusion in our community. Not only are they looking for bright businesses, but they as that we wear purple and blue and spread the word. Be sure to be creative as the business with the most creative decorations wins a basket of goodies from Sweet, Lake of the Woods.
In Ontario, 90 locations in 37 cities and towns around the province are being illuminated to raise awareness about the valuable contributions people with disabilities make to businesses and communities. The Government of Ontario is participating for the first time, lighting provincial buildings in five cities.
Dylan Shumka-White is with KACL and joined Thursday's Q Morning Show to tell us more.
