YPN Happy Hour Fundraiser!

April 20, 2023

Attention Nanaimo!
We need your HELP to support our community's most vulnerable members - hungry children. The statistics are heartbreaking: 51% of children in lone-parent families in Nanaimo live in poverty. 21% of Nanaimo's children live below the poverty rate. A shocking 5,200 children in Nanaimo are currently living in poverty.

But there's hope! You can make a difference by attending our upcoming Happy Hour Fundraising event on April 20th at 5:30pm at the Attic at Black Rabbit Kitchen located at 321 Selby Street.

There will be live music played by Nanaimo's own Brandon James Mason!

Help us to support hungry children in our community. Every single dollar raised will go towards providing healthy and nutritious food for these kids and their families. Entry will be by donation and you can learn more about the Nanaimo Foodshare Good Food Box Program for Vulnerable Children.
Imagine the impact we can make together - we can work towards ensuring that no child in Nanaimo goes to bed hungry. So please, mark your calendars and join us at this event. Let's show these kids that they are not alone and that we care about their well-being. Together, we can make a real difference in our community. See you there!
