For the last 7 years, more than 3,000 people braved a cold Ottawa night and slept outside. Thanks to their efforts they raised $1.3 million for the Youth Services Bureau (YSB) shelters and housing programs for youth. But the fight is not over. There are still many youth in our city who need your support.
Stay Up Ottawa is YSB’s annual citywide event which took place on November 27th with lots of excitement, Promotion, Corporate and City Champions rallying around it. Right now, there are youth in Ottawa who struggle every night to find a safe place to sleep. That leaves little room for anything else including going to school, finding work or meeting even the most basic of human needs. YSB provides shelter programs and services that support youth so they can make positive changes in their lives. You can help support these youth by supporting YSB. Join Ottawa’s largest overnight challenge and help youth make a positive change in their lives.
Label Innovation is again pleased to be able to play a part in helping fight homelessness in Ottawa by participating in 2020’s Stay Up Ottawa. Braving the elements this year was Rudy Witlox, Paul Carusi, Tracy Wilson and Leeanne Harvey.
You can help make a difference in the life of a youth. To learn more about Stay Up Ottawa or the Youth Services Bureau, visit ysbfoundation.akaraisin.com/ui/stayupottawa
