Youth Centre Funding through Emergency Community Support Fund

Published on August 10, 2020

I was pleased to join Eric Wang (Community Foundations), Anita Mercier (director of development at the Y), Victoria Robertson (Connect Youth), Rob Adams (YMCA of Eastern Ontario), and Trish Buote (United Way Leeds & Grenville) at the cheque presentation of the federal government's Emergency Community Support Funding - the United Way of Leeds and Grenville and the Brockville and Area Community Foundation gathered the fund and presented it to the YMCA of Eastern Ontario for the opening of a teen drop-in centre at the Brockville YMCA. It will be a great support for young people during these Covid times.
