Last fall, Evan and Sharlene were invited by the youth philanthropy class at Frances Kelsey Secondary, to talk about Umbrella, the clients we serve and share our experiences.
The class had invited several organizations and had the difficult task of selecting who would receive all, or a portion of, the $2500 from Victoria Foundation. Umbrella and two other organizations, Hope Farm and Victoria Brain Injury Society, were all selected.
Last night, Evan and Sharlene attended the Victoria Foundation Vital Youth Award event and received the award and grant from two of the students, Colby and Stephanie, pictured above.
We are incredibly honoured and grateful to receive this grant, and we would like to thank the students at Frances Kelsey and Victoria Foundation for funding this wonderful initiative.
