Those kids at Ecole Puntledge Park with their “I Can” motto sure can. Thanks to Julie’s Grade 3 Class for donating the proceeds from their week-end sale at the school to YANA

Chelsey Newton collected donations for YANA at her Kid’s Clutter sale on April 20th. This is a great event and we sure appreciate the donation.

Thank you to all the businesses and individuals who decorated and donated trees to the Driftwood Mall’s Christmas Tree fundraiser for YANA A big thank you to Heather who organized the entire event.

April 22-26 was the first annual YANA Week in the Schools. What a great way to raise awareness about how YANA helps families in School District 71. Many schools held awareness assemblies and fund raising events. We thank our Director, Hugh MacKinnon for an amazing job of organizing this, and attending many of the events.

Christopher & Wendy Smith sure have big hearts and a ton of enthusiasm. They worked with Mark Isfeld School to organize the Drive for Charity event at Isfeld School on April 21st. The proceeds from the Croquet game (what family fun!) and the Silent Auction were donated to YANA Thanks go to the staff and students at the school as well.

Thank you to Pam Tessman who did a little busking with her son – singing ‘Here to Help’. The donated the proceeds from their busking day to YANA – so sweet!

Thanks to Speed Pro for our fancy new “cheque” that we can use for photos of our YANA donors. You guys sure are community minded.

When Carrie Lemke, a voice teacher, and her students performed a musical theater recital they decided to accept donations for YANA From all accounts it was a successful event.

When little Kai’s parents asked him if he’d like to donate some of the money from his piggy bank he said he wanted to give it to YANA and he presented it in a pretty box with a ribbon and a hug.
