Chair of the Child Advocacy Centre puts out a call for volunteers for Thursday event

Published

Hi my friends.  As most of you know I’m the Chair of the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Center and we’ve been running a Home Lottery Campaign.

We’ve had to extend the draw because we have to sell quite a few more tickets.  The support from the community has been great but we have to do more.

I’m looking for 100 people to volunteer this coming Thursday night to go door to door and sell tickets.  If you or possibly some of your staff or co workers would be able to help out, that would be awesome.  

Anyone interested can email me at Terry@abbeyplatinum.ca or text me at 403-896 3675

We are going to meet at the Sheraton Hotel at 5:30 pm on Thursday March 21 in the Palermo Room to get credentials, information and ticket forms.

More information when I get a list of people. There will be some prizes for most sold etc.

I really appreciate the help for this great cause. We have looked after over 450 children in just over a year in Central Alberta. https://cacaclottery.ca

From Todayville 

Since it opened 16 months ago, the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre has served over 440 children from more than 50 different communities.  The Child Advocacy Centre is raising funds to build a facility specifically for their purpose of bringing healing to the lives of children who have been abused.  Support from all these communities will be critical.

The Advocacy Centre “must” sell more tickets!  If you’ve already made your purchase you can still help.  Make sure your friends and loved ones know about this lottery.  Please do your best to spread the news to your contacts in Edmonton and Calgary and around the province.  So many people would love a chance to own a new home for just $35 dollars.

YOUTH HQ ANNOUNCES NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Youth HQ is pleased to announce its Board of Directors has appointed Rob Lewis as Executive Director, effective April 6, 2020. Lewis will be leaving the City of Red Deer, where he holds the role of Program Coordinator for Family and Community Support Services (FCSS).

Starting in the not-for-profit industry with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Medicine Hat and District, Lewis is no stranger to the organization and our programs. As a former Program Director with Youth HQ, as well as his work at the national level as Western Regional Executive Director for Big Brothers Big Sisters Canada, his direct experience as well as outside experience in outcome measurement and evaluation will be assets to the organization.

“It will be really great to have someone who is already so familiar with our programs and what we do hit the ground running,” said Randy Nicholls, Board Chair with Youth HQ. “We’re looking forward to seeing his skills put to good use.”

Rob has a passion for people and looks forward to continuing to make a real difference in our community. “I’m grateful to be moving into a position where I can support a team of outstanding staff to maximize their impact with youth across central Alberta,” Lewis shared. “I’m excited to see what the future holds for me in this role.”

The Board would like to take the opportunity to give kudos and thanks to Dawn Flanagan for her leadership as Acting Executive Director of Youth HQ during this period of transition. Her willingness to take on this challenging role at a time when her skills were greatly needed is a true testament to how important she is to this organization. Dawn will continue in the role of Acting Executive Director until Rob begins in April.

About Youth HQ

Youth HQ, along with its affiliates Big Brothers Big Sisters of Red Deer & District and Boys and Girls Club of Red Deer & District, offers numerous programs and services that support children, youth and families. We all need to ensure our children and youth have accessible, low barrier, safe places to go. Youth HQ thanks our community, stakeholders and funders who enable us to do so.
