Youth Empowerment Support Services (YESS)
Posted on November 30th, 2016
James Mowat School will be supporting the Youth Empowerment Support Services (YESS). YESS is an organization located in Edmonton, that supports at risk teens and youth all across the province. YESS provides youth who are in crisis and experiencing homelessness in Edmonton with so much more than just shelter, they serve more than 50,000 nutritious meals every year. They also prove kids with toiletries like deodorant and toothbrushes, as well as socks, footwear, and clothing to meet their need. They rely completely on donations from the community.
Since we are hosting an outdoor event we deemed it appropriate to ask for warm, everyday items such as new gloves, new mittens, new socks, and new winter toques.
A donation bin will be set up for your convenience at the Christmas Family Fun night. Thank you to the James Mowat School Parent Advisory Association for organizing this fundraiser.
