YVC! and the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre
On Thursday, December 6th, 2018, a group of Young Voices Can! volunteers and board members joined forces with the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Center and served a delicious holiday dinner to over 150 underprivileged community members. Our volunteers and board members were spotted greeting and registering guests, setting up and cleaning up before and after the event, serving dinner, doing craft activities, and decorating cookies with the children. The night ended with some of our volunteers getting the chance to help Santa hand out his wonderful gifts to the attending families!
On Friday September 28th, an enthusiastic group cleaned up garbage from on Alta Vista Drive from Ridgemont Ave to Bank Street. This was the first of our activities which will culminate in a summer leadership conference for youth at Ashbury College.
The event gave visibility to YVC! and a number of homeowners came out and thanked the kids. One lady said “in all my years here I have had tons of garbage thrown on my lawn by students but this is the first time I’ve ever seen kids picking up the garbage”.
Stay tuned for details of the next event!
