KELOWNA - This past Sunday, Melcor Developments Ltd. presented the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign with a $10,000 cheque for funds raised through their local community charitable events in 2015.
The “big cheque” was presented at Melcor’s 4th annual Kelowna Rockets Skate at BlueSky at Black Mountain where the local ATOM “Sharks” team won the opportunity to battle it out with their hockey hero’s on the community outdoor rink.
“The YMCA of Okanagan is doing great work in our community and we are proud to support them,” says Andrew Bruce, Melcor Developments Ltd. Regional Manager, Kelowna. “We are committed to building communities that enrich quality of life – communities where people live, work, shop and play and the Y helps to keep these communities healthier, more connected, and ultimately stronger.”
“We are grateful for the continued support and generosity from Melcor,” exclaims Rhonda Zakala, GM of Fund Development at the YMCA of Okanagan. “Our communities are facing growing challenges: vulnerable families, unhealthy lifestyles and social isolation. This donation will help even more children and families in need with the opportunity to be active, thrive and feel they belong through YMCA membership and child care programs.”
Each year the YMCA of Okanagan is able to provide financial assistance to low-income families so they have equal access to Y programs and services. This is only made possible through generous support from our community.
