Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs are proud of being a partner of "Raising the Roof’s 19th annual Toque Tuesday 2016". It takes place on February 2, 2016. As a partner of this campaign, we sell toques and mittens to support our youth experiencing homelessness and ones at risk of being homeless. Join us tomorrow night at the Kelowna Rockets Hockey Game where we will be selling toques, mitts and socks to support our programs for youth at risk.
This nation-wide annual campaign has supported over 180 communities across Canada and raised $7 million in support of long term solutions to homelessness since 1997. 50% of the proceeds of each item benefits youth experiencing homelessness in our community. Many youth either have no home to go to at all, our couch surfing or are on the verge of losing their home.
Let's support our youth and get warm with these cosy toques and mitts!
If you would like to purchase a toque or mittens, please contact with Richelle Leckey.
