UPDATE: We managed to sell $2500 worth of toques for the YSB so thank you everyone who helped in this fundraiser and thank you to those who came out and bought the toques!
We are selling toques in support of the Youth Services Bureau, so come into any of our locations to pick one up. They are only $10 and the money goes to provide services to the over 1,000 homeless youth in Ottawa and 65,000 homeless youth across Canada.
Some facts about the fundraiser:
- 1 toque will provide a youth with three nutritious suppers
- 4 toques will provide internet access to help at-risk youth stay connected to positive influences, complete school assignments, and occupy time in a positive manner
- 10 toques will provide supper and groceries for 24 youth in a shelter for one day
- 1 box of toques will help 16 youth purchase a monthly bus pass to go to school, go to work, and get back on their feet
We also supplied coffee to those camping out overnight on city hall in support of the YSB fundraiser. It was a cold night, but spirits were high for this great cause.
