As part of their celebration of 40 years serving our community, the Christie’s RV and Jayco families are very pleased to present a cheque for $4000 to Algoma Family Services Foundation in support of local children, youth and families with mental health problems.
Over the past 16 years, Christie’s RV has been a dedicated community partner with AFS Foundation’s ‘Great Escape Dream Draw’ and has been instrumental to the ongoing success of this major fundraising event. “I cannot say enough about the management and staff of Christie’s RV, they go above and beyond to ensure that our annual event is successful” states Cathy Macnamara, Foundation Manager. “This generous gift illustrates their strong commitment to a community that has supported them over the last 40 years.”
“It’s thru the support of our local community that businesses like ours are able to give back” comments Scott Christie, General Manager at Christie’s RV. We are truly grateful for the ongoing support we have experienced over the years”.
Algoma Family Services Foundation looks to the community for their support to help resource much needed early intervention and prevention programs for local children and youth who struggle with mental health issues like, anxiety disorders, depression, ADHD, anger, aggression and child based trauma.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Algoma Family Services Foundation and the local children, youth and families touched by this generous gift, congratulations on your 40th Anniversary of proudly serving our community!
