A Special Way to Honour Your Mother

April 29th, 2014

Youville Centre’s annual Mother’s Day Campaign is back!


First, we would like to express our sincere thanks to each and every one of you who honoured your mother last year with a donation to help the young moms and children at Youville Centre.

With your help we were able to double our fundraising efforts from the inaugural year of this campaign and we raised $7,000 which directly supported the innovative programs and services that serve our young mothers and children here at the centre.

This year you can help us strive toward our new goal of raising $10,000! We are hopeful that with your help we can truly show our young moms that the community is rooting for them as they work hard each day to parent and study.

The first name of each mother who is honoured will be written on a paper tulip and displayed around our centre to show our young moms the wonderful support they have from our donor community. We love to see this paper garden grow as it inspires our students daily as they climb the stairs to attend classes on the third floor.


We also have a small card that you can give to your mother or to anyone you are honouring this Mother’s Day. We have mailed a hard copy to everyone on our newsletter mailing list but if you prefer to donate online, please feel free to print the image below out to include with your Mother’s Day card.
