Direct Energy and Direct Energy Regulated Services made a $3,500 donation to the YMCA of Wood Buffalo.
This donation will directly help fund programs the YMCA offers in the region such as employment services, child care, health and fitness, and education and training.
“We are proud to partner with the YMCA to help contribute to hopeful and caring communities in Fort McMurray,” said Gary Newcombe, Vice President, Government and Regulatory Affairs, Direct Energy.
They presented the cheque during Direct Energy’s holiday kick-off event at Aim High Park on Friday, Dec. 14, 2018, opening the doors to members of the YMCA and the community. More than 400 kids of all ages took part in an afternoon adventure full of trampolines, playground activities, and virtual reality games
