Re:         West Broadway Youth Outreach Appeal

West Broadway Youth Outreach (WBYO) in Winnipeg has been advised, on very short notice, that the major corporate sponsor, which has in the past donated all of the gifts for the Holiday Party, is unable to do so this year.  Can you help?  The WBYO is looking for unwrapped toys (or money to buy toys) for the following age ranges:       

  Number of Children  
Infants - 2 years      Boys:  7    Girls:   7
Ages 2-5: Boys:  6     Girls: 11     
Ages 6-8: Boys: 18    Girls: 17
Ages 9-11: Boys: 13    Girls: 14
Ages 12-15:             Boys: 12    Girls: 20  
Ages 16-18:             Boys:   9    Girls: 10

We will come and pick up your donations (call 204-984-9470) or they can be dropped off at the TEAM Office by December 16, 2014.

Popular toys include sports supplies e.g. basketballs, jump ropes, stuffed animals, building blocks, dolls, board and card games, mini-stereos, toy cars and planes, craft making kits and craft supplies, any technology e.g. any sort of hand-held video games or leapfrog, instruments, Lego, older girls like purses, books, anything super hero related, cool drink straws etc.

West Broadway Youth Outreach is an after-school drop-in program that has been serving Winnipeg’s inner-city youth for the past 23 years.  They offer over 29 programs a week, providing opportunities to play, learn and grow in a safe and nurturing environment.
