Galerie Q, a non-profit enterprise held a fundraising event for the YES Shelter for Youth and Families on May 13th. YES launched our new roof campaign, where we are aiming to raise $50,000 for a new metal roof. YES raised $8000 towards our new metal roof.
The YES Shelter proves safety and comfort to families and youth in crisis. Our roof is 15 years old and a missing shingle caused a small leak in the family’s room last spring. We patched it up, be we know the roof needs to be replaced.
The evening event included special guest speakers who shared their stories, reaffirming the great work that YES does within the community. In addition, Havelock Metal officially presented a cheque for $10,000 towards the roof, a result of their Gimmie Shelter Fundraiser where YES was selected as the recipient.
