The 20th Annual Festival of Giving will be held June 3, 2023 and will support Youth Wellness Hubs Ontario (YHWO).
YWHO (formerly known as Access Open Minds) is a walk-in, one-stop shop for youth, ages 12-25 to connect with mental health supports, substance use care, primary care, housing and other community and social services.
The care, services and programs are free and are all under one roof in a space designed by youth for youth.
YWHO is located at 140 King Street West, in downtown Chatham.
“We are beyond excited to team up with the volunteers who are organizing the Festival of Giving,” stated Andria Appeldoorn, Director of Fund Development and Communications, in a media release.
“This event will help raise much needed funds and awareness of mental health services we provide for youth across Chatham-Kent.”
Festival of Giving Co-Chair Tim Regan added: “It was important for the Festival volunteers to find an organization that we could help spotlight and bring attention to. The funds raised will be used to provide activities and programming for youth in our community.”
Tickets for the Festival of Giving ‘Retro Rewind’ will be available to the public by the end of March.
