The YMCA of Northern BC celebrated their 2017 strong kids campaign today. Over $27,000 has been raised with the end goal for the campaign set at $50,000. The YMCA is aiming to raise the money by the end of August and has received plenty of help from their cooperate sponsors which they also gave thanks to today. They revealed a donor wall as a way of thanking all of the companies and organization that contributed to the success of the YMCA in 2016.
“We have a lot of people that donate during this time but we really need the community to continue to support us.” said YMCA Camps Manager, Stephanie Mikalishen. “The dollars from our numerous kids campaign fundraisers will also go toward the goal.”
August 31st marks the end of the campaign. The money raised will be used to support two-hundred and ten children, and youth participate in YMCA camps and programs.
