Since 1958, the Catholic Youth Organization (C.Y.O.) has made it their mission to break down barriers, to ensure that all children no matter their age, ability or financial status, have access to their programs and services.
Unfortunately, on March 13th, 2020, all programs were immediately suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although they have made great attempts to bring operations back into full swing, public health guidelines and a second wave have made it next to impossible to serve the nearly 30,000 children they are used to seeing annually.
The cancellation and loss of Camp Marydale & Camp Brébeuf’s summer camp programs have already lost the agency the $900,000 it relies on to pay its bills annually. This loss has resulted in the termination of 6 full time staff members and is putting the agency at risk of nonexistence.
The C.Y.O. needs your help!
To keep the community safe, they will be hosting an online, virtual raffle with all proceeds going to ensure the C.Y.O. can maintain operations into 2021.
From November 20th at 12:00-noon to December 4th at 11:59pm feel free to purchase tickets to the prizes of your choice on the website:https://www.cyo.on.ca/raffle
Support the C.Y.O., while completing your Christmas shopping!
All winners will be drawn on December 5th, 2020 with all raffle prize winners being posted on our website by 4:00pm the same day.
Thank you for helping an organization where "children are at the heart of their mission".
