Youville Moms Ready for School Thanks to MBNA

September 11th, 2012

For two years now, MBNA‘s Women In Leadership (WIL) Grouphas been supporting Youville Centre’s young mothers and their children in various ways. From diaper drives to food and clothing drives, financial support, event participation and guest speaking presentations, this amazing group has been with us along the way. With another academic year upon us, we were very happy to learn that the women of MBNA had decided to purchase school bags and school supplies for all 48 of our current students, and a few extra for new students that may join us in the coming months.

As you can see in the photos below, our young moms were very happy to receive their bags! Inside each bag was a healthy supply of paper, pens, a calculator, folders, and other essential tools that will help them stay on track and work towards their Ontario Secondary School credits.

Many thanks goes to MBNA’s Women in Leadership (WIL) Groupfor this wonderful gift! It is truly inspiring to have women in our community who choose to support the young women of Youville Centre as they reach toward their dreams.
