West Island Collage Students – It takes a whole community to help Sun Youth fulfill its mission to help people and families in need in the Greater Montreal area by providing ongoing support and financial assistance. Sometimes your efforts go further than you could imagine.
From March 26th and 29th, 2018, students from Concordia’s Exercise Science Department hosted a Wellness Week. The week-long event promoted healthy living through exercise classes, massages and health information in order to raise money for a charity. This year, they selected Sun Youth. The initiative raised more than $2,000 for the organization’s sports and recreation youth programs. Sun Youth would like to thank the students from the Concordia Exercise Science Department and everyone who took part in the event, thus making a considerable difference in the lives of children!
On April 17th, 2018, Sun Youth had the pleasure of welcoming representatives of the West-Island College Voyageurs juvenile hockey team who came bearing gifts. They made an $800 contribution to the organization’s SLAP Hockey Development program while also donating over 200 lb of gently used hockey equipment for the children taking part in SLAP. This program is specifically designed to make this sport accessible to disadvantaged kids 5 to 13 years old. On behalf of these many hockey players in the making, Sun Youth would like to thank the West-Island College Voyageurs for their very nice contribution!
You too can contribute to Sun Youth, thus helping to ensure the organization’s sustainability for the benefit of the community, by organizing sports activities or fundraising events. There are different and fun ways to make a difference!
