Owen Sound, ON – July 13, 2022 –The YMCA of Owen Sound Grey Bruce is honoured to once again receive the support of Zehrs’ Give a Little, Help a Lot campaign to assist children in Grey and Bruce Counties. For over 10 years, Zehrs Markets and their parent company, Loblaw Companies Limited, have been working with the YMCA to create opportunities for children to connect with each other and gain healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
This campaign invites members of the community to support healthy, active living opportunities for children by donating to the YMCA. Since this campaign began, hundreds of kids have benefited from the generosity of Grey and Bruce residents, and the YMCA is truly grateful for their support.
From July 15 to August 1, Zehrs Markets stores in Ontario invite shoppers to Give a Little, Help a Lot by adding $2 to their grocery bill in support of their local YMCA. The funds collected from the Owen Sound Zehrs store will provide financial assistance to allow kids in Grey and Bruce to participate in health-focused YMCA programs that will help ensure they remain connected, active, and healthy.
“The Give a Little, Help a Lot campaign gives children the opportunity, no matter their financial circumstances, to access YMCA programs and be part of a supportive community,” says Jane Abraham-Dunn, Fund Development Lead, at the YMCA of Owen Sound Grey Bruce. “The YMCA is playing a significant role in the economic and social recovery of communities due to COVID-19 and that includes ensuring kids and their families continue to have access to the resources they need. We appreciate the community members who are guaranteeing these meaningful experiences for children are available by donating to support YMCA programs.”
