Through the generous donation of 20 Telus Hockey cup tickets from RBC Bank and their close relationship with United Way Northern BC, a wonderful opportunity has been opened for kids to attend the hockey game tonight.
“We are simply overjoyed at RBC’s generosity and our working relationship with United Way” said Tara Legault – Coordinator of Marketing at the YMCA. “United Way funds our after school youth program in Prince George. They contacted us with the offer to enable kids to attend the hockey game and we were excited for our kids. This is a great opportunity for the kids who would usually not have access to an event like the Telus Cup.”
United Way has funded the Y-Citizens After School Program for a number of years. Through the program kids are able to receive quality after school care, leadership and a safe environment before their parents get home from work.
United Way of Northern BC has been working in northern communities for over 47 years to help move families from poverty to possibility, help kids be all they can be, and to build stronger communities for all.
