Another successful year of fundraising has come for the Home Depot Canada Foundation’s Orange Door Project. A total of $16,840 is heading toward the Lloydminster Community Youth Centre from the Lloydminster Home Depot on July 30 at 1 p.m.
A cheque will be presented from the Home Depot Canada to the Lloydminster Community Youth Centre at the LCYC Building, as a result of the Orange Door Project fundraising campaign. The Lloydminster Home Depot raised $8,420, which was matched by the foundation to make a total of $16,840.
The LCYC says these funds help the centre with transportation in and around the community, three hot meals each week, and programs that build skills and capacity. The centre is very proud of the mentorship it offers as well as the programs it serves focusing on mental, physical and emotional wellness.
The Home Depot Canada Foundation established The Orange Door Project with the goal of eliminating youth homelessness in Canada. All 182 stores took part in this year’s campaign and together more than $900,000 will be distributed to 120 charity partners in support of vulnerable and homeless youth.
