In May 2020, a special edition of Giving Tuesday was organized across Canada to raise awareness of the importance of supporting community organization during the crisis.
This was an opportunity not to be missed to promote the impacts of the Y’s programs. Our teams swung into action and created a Facebook Live event like never before. A dozen live workshops were offered one after another. They included tips for parents on how to motivate their teens, story time and crafts for little ones, a kickboxing class, and even, a campfire singalong with the Camp YMCA Kanawana team!
Of course, the event also aimed to raise money to support all these programs. Thanks to the generosity of our community and the Trottier Family Foundation who doubled donations, we raised $81,520! A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of this initiative.
