Last fall, a construction accident near Boyle Street Community Services caused damage that closed our Pet Food Bank and many other services. Thankfully, Bissell Centre saved the day and ensured the Pet Food Bank kept running there while repairs were made at Boyle Street. Those repairs are now complete! The Pet Food Bank returns to Boyle Street starting Friday, March 3, and will be open thereafter on Mondays and Fridays from 9:30-11:30 a.m.
Also reopening is the Boyle Street Youth Unit. That means our Underground City music project is in full swing! If you are interested in learning about songwriting, production, and performing, please join the Underground City team at the Youth Unit this month on Friday March 10 and 24 from 4-5 p.m.
Finally, another important update this month is that we have started a new tradition at our floor hockey program (Fridays 1-3 p.m. at Boyle Street Plaza). It is a monthly sportsmanship award recognizing participants who go above and beyond in personifying leadership, fair play, and team spirit! We started giving out the award in December 2016, and the winner was Kyle T., and in January 2017 it was George G. Congrats to both players!
