The Peterborough Youth Emergency Shelter (aka YES) is having their annual fundraiser – this time as a BBQ. Nothing fancy – but we will be preparing coffee – and selling bags of coffee to help them raise money. Your support means the world – we know it’s easier to roll over and go back to bed on Saturday morning – but this organization needs you to get up and come buy a burger and a coffee!!
Saturday June 19th, 2010 from 10am – 2:30pm
Y.E.S. provides emergency housing for both youth and families without shelter, as well as other essential services including a food cupboard, help with housing and employment, life skills training and educational programs. The shelter is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Y.E.S. relies on support from the community to augment its operating budget.
Raffle tickets will also be on sale for a chance to WIN BIG – a laptop computer and printer donated by Computer Solutions “Plus”, a gas barbeque from Rona Cashway, a family health membership from the YMCA and more! Generous sponsors for the event include M & M Meats, A & W, Shopper’s Drug Mart, Millbrook Foodland and Kyoto Coffee.
Come out, bring your family and friends and enjoy some good food and family entertainment to help support our youth .
Try to remember that we don’t all have the same supports in our lives – this organization helps to level the playing field a little…
