This past month, Melcor Developments Ltd. presented the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign with a $9,000 cheque for funds raised through their local community charitable events in 2018.

“The YMCA of Okanagan is doing great work in our community and we are proud to support them,” says Andrew Bruce, Melcor Developments Ltd. Regional Manager, Kelowna. “We are committed to building communities that enrich quality of life – communities where people live, work, shop and play and the Y helps to keep these communities healthier, more connected, and ultimately stronger. We are also extremely proud of the funds raised by our team at Black Mountain Golf Club, the residents of BlueSky and individuals like Jack Newton who hosts a golf tournament supporting Strong Kids.”

“We are so incredibly grateful for the continued support and generosity from this group of donors,” exclaims Rhonda Zakala, VP of Fund Development at the YMCA of Okanagan. “Our communities are facing growing challenges: vulnerable families, unhealthy lifestyles and social isolation. The donations from Melcor and Big Jack’s Golf Tournament over the years have provided so many more children and families in need with the opportunity to be active, thrive and feel they belong through YMCA memberships and child care programs.”

Each year the YMCA of Okanagan is able to provide financial assistance to low-income families so they have equal access to Y programs and services. This is only made possible through generous support from our community.
