After much consideration with our leadership, and in consulting with other community stakeholders and service agencies, we have decided to put our youth programs on hold. This includes both our baking and art programs.
The safety and wellbeing of our youth, staff, volunteers, and customers is our utmost priority, and we feel this move will help reduce the risks associated with the spread of COVID-19, particularly as we work with a vulnerable population of young people.
We are committed to still supporting our youth during this time as best we can. For those regularly involved in the baking employment program, we are trying to ensure we are able to pay them for shifts they would have normally worked, so as not to add additional financial stress for them during this uncertain time.
If you are interested in helping us be able to do this, please consider a donation to the program. Tax deductible donations can be made through the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton by clicking here.
Should you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for continuing to support us and our youth!
