Recycling for Strong Kids

Good Things Happen at the YMCA

In these challenging times there are some happy moments. The Housekeeping team at the Gray Family Eau Claire YMCA recently started an initiative to centrally store and collect empty bottles for the YMCA Strong Kids campaign.

The value of the first cheque to Strong Kids was $340.00 and the 2nd  pick-up is scheduled before the end of the year. That’s enough to send a child to camp and have the experience of a lifetime, or teach the essential life skill of swimming to a family new to our city!

We’re so proud of our staff for taking on this wonderful initiative!

Strong Kids

The following  team members  participated in the first collection:

Paramjit Darrar, Nirpal Shergill, Kamla Sharma, Monohar Nirwal, Genina Yepes, Jasvir Dhanoa, Roop Sidhu, Major Gill, Gurmit Singh and Sukhdev Bains.
