Macdonald Youth Services (MYS) has joined forces with The Home Depot Canada Foundation to raise funds for homeless youth in Winnipeg.
All five Home Depot stores in the city will participate in The Orange Door Project by selling paper doors for $2 each between December 1-16.
“The work that Macdonald Youth Services provides to Winnipeg’s homeless youth is invaluable,” said Amanda Cornelisse, manager of The Home Depot Canada Foundation.
“We look forward to working together with our customers to give vulnerable youth opportunities for a brighter future during this holiday season.”
Dr. Erma Chapman, CEO of MYS, says this time of year can be especially hard for homeless youth. Funds raised through the project will go to MYS transition services programs to help teens at risk of being homeless this holiday season.
