Outpouring of Support for Mother’s Day Campaign

June 19th, 2013

Mother’s Day is an important time at Youville Centre, and this May we continued our tradition with our Mother’s Day Campaign. The campaign is an annual initiative for support from the community, and it focuses on honouring mothers, both here at Youville Centre and in the community.

When donations were given, generous supporters also told us their mother’s name, as the premise of the campaign is to “honour your mother by helping the young mothers of Youville Centre”. As mothers’ names were shared with us, we wrote them on paper tulips that decorated our centre. Slowly each day as donations came in, this ‘paper garden’ grew, and our young moms saw a visual representation of our caring community.

Last year was our first year running this campaign and we were able to raise $3,500! This year we were astonished at the outpouring of support from the community as the campaign raised $7,000!

Our utmost gratitude goes out to each and every one of our donors who supported this campaign! Your donation will go directly to support the innovative programs and services we run at Youville Centre each day.

Thank you for honouring your mother — in doing so, you have directly impacted the lives of Youville Centre’s young mothers and their children.
