Until June 23, customers who make a $2 donation at The Home Depot Canada North Bay store will contribute to Crisis Centre North Bay’s efforts to assist at-risk and homeless youth across Canada.
Funds raised will be used to repair, renovate and maintain the shelter and the Futures Residence, as well as cover support program costs for young people aged 16 to 24.
“As one of the fastest-growing segments of the homeless population in Canada, youth homelessness is an urgent and complex issue. That is why 100 per cent of every customer donation goes directly to helping local youth,” said Pam O’Rourke, chair, board of directors, The Home Depot Canada Foundation.
Through The Orange Door Project fundraising campaign, The Home Depot Canada Foundation supports 120 organizations that are committed to preventing and ending youth homelessness across the country.
