Emergency Relief Bake Share

It’s that time of the year again!

On Monday, December 9th, we are hosting our annual Emergency Relief Bake Share. Between 10:30am-6:00pm, stop by the Eau Claire YMCA and grab some holiday treats to support YMCA’s across the globe!

This fund helps provide financial support to YMCA’s around the world in times of emergency, the most recent example of this being Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

YMCA’s build communities in more than 12, 000 locations around the world, which means that we are well placed to respond in emergency situations such as natural disasters or civil conflicts. Although we are not an emergency “relief” organization, we are a community development organization and therefore coordinate closely with other organizations in emergency response efforts.

100% of donations to YMCA Calgary’s Emergency Response Fund go directly to a YMCA community in need, and long after the headlines have been forgotten, YMCA will continue to be a part of the local community.

Please consider stopping by and checking out our Bake Share! If you would like to contribute baking, please email Carla Bitz, Global Initiatives Director, at cbitz@calgary.ymca.ca.
