Just last Wednesday 100 Men YEG members met to hear from three deserving charities.
If you didn’t get an opportunity to attend, you can still donate your $100 via this link: http://100menyeg.com/donate/ It’s never too late, and if everyone who has committed to this quarterly donation follows through, the impact will be even better!
So on with it, what happened?
First, SACE came back and told us how they allocated the $15K they received from us at our last meeting.
Please read the thank you letter we received HERE

We are a volunteer driven, grassroots community organization with a passion to offer hope, direction and support to kids, youth and parents. We provide opportunities to families whose socioeconomic situations have made it difficult for them to access the services they need for the optimal development of their kids.
