We are thrilled to share that TD Bank Group has announced a $1 million gift to our Strong Start, Great Future Campaign. This donation makes them the lead green funder for Y centres across the GTA! The exciting announcement was made following our Annual General Meeting at Toronto Central YMCA, where TD supported the green roof in 2009. The long-time partnership between TD Bank Group and the YMCA of Greater Toronto is invaluable and we couldn’t be more grateful for this support. Read the press release here.
With the donation funding sustainable initiatives at our current and future centres, projects could include the 30,000 sq ft green roof at the new Cooper Koo Family YMCA, a legacy building set to open following the Pan Am Games in 2016 in the West Donlands community, as well as environmental features at our Vanauley Street YMCA youth-drop in centre and shelter. Plans for green initiatives are also in development at the future Kingston Road YMCA in the Upper Beach, Bridletowne Circle YMCA in north Scarborough, and Kipling Avenue YMCA in Etobicoke.
Thanks again to TD Bank Group for this incredible support. Together, we will continue to build healthier communities across the GTA now, and in the future.
