seochc-dream-community-fundOn March 15th 2016, José Cardoso, Manager, Personal Services – Development, Hunt Club Service Centre and Claire Lauzon, Chairwomen of the Board of Directors of Caisse populaire Rideau-Vision d’Ottawa presented a cheque in the amount of $21,980 to Marcie Doran, President of the Board of Directors of South-East Ottawa Community Health Centre (SEOCHC). The funds will support Youth Zone and Girls on the Move programs at the Hunt Club satellite location, 3320 Paul Anka Drive.

Youth Zone, which is open to all youth, provides free quality multi-sport and leadership opportunities for youth ages 8 to 18.  Girls on the Move provides girls ages 9 to 13 with opportunities to be active in a safe and supportive environment.

These programs remove barriers such as cost, transportation and equipment so all participants can play, develop their skills and foster a love for sport and activity.  Over 200 children and youth and their families will benefit from these programs on a weekly basis.

“The youth programs offered by SEOCHC at the Hunt Club-Riverside Park Community Centre shaped me into the person I am today. Because of all the opportunities I received, I have become a successful leader and mentor to youth, and being able to do that is truly amazing” says Nardine Maayteh, past participant of the programs and now a youth worker with the Centre.

Thank you Desjardins, Caisse populaire  Rideau-Vision d’Ottawa for supporting our youth and communities!!  You are making a difference in the lives of youth in the Hunt Club area.
