More families in need living in the Okanagan are able to afford access to health facilities, child care and child and youth development programs thanks to the generosity of Gibson Contracting, the Wyant Group and Valens GroWorks.
Proceeds from the Gibson Contracting Client Appreciation Event and Fundraiser, held June 23rd at the Porsche dealership, raised $7,217.71 in support of the YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign. 
“Since moving to Kelowna and starting Gibson Contracting in 2003, the community has embraced my passion for providing quality custom homes,” said Darcy Gibson. “After receiving the Tommie Awards 2018 Builder of the Year Award, I wanted to give back to this amazing place and our supportive clients. With the assistance from my Gibson team, the Wyant Group and Valens GroWorks, we selected to support the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign for our first annual Gibson Contracting fundraiser as it is such a great cause and 100% of all donations stay local.”
“It is because of caring community minded businesses like Gibson Contracting that we are able to ensure everyone has equal opportunity to participate in our programs and facilities,” said Margo Buckley, YMCA Fund Development Officer. “Last year, the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign provided financial assistance for over 4,000 local children and families with thousands more benefitting from free YMCA programs funded by our generous donors.
The YMCA relies on community support to ensure quality programs are accessible to all. Learn more about the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign and other opportunities to give.
