Sales rep Trevor Thomas and broker Jean Jamieson of North Bay Century 21 Blue Sky Region Realty in North Bay, Ont. have pledged a $50,000 donation to the One Kids Place Children’s Treatment Centre.
“We are very lucky that the support we receive from our clients has given us the ability to maintain an ongoing involvement with and commitment to One Kids Place,” says Thomas.
“Our line of business is all about building our community and being able to contribute to the ongoing success of One Kids Place is both an honour, and a means for us to reinforce our commitment to the North Bay region,” Jamieson says. She is Thomas’ mother.
One Kids Place provides a wide range of services and support to children, youth and their families throughout the region. After several years in a temporary location, they recently opened a new permanent facility that has allowed them to more effectively provide their services and reach an even wider range of families throughout the districts of Muskoka, Nipissing and Parry Sound.
“We are constantly looking to grow and develop our services and the reality of our situation is that it takes a substantial financial commitment to do so; the generosity of people like Trevor and Jean is what has allowed us to become a true regional leader in children and youth treatment,” says One Kids Place executive director Judy Sharpe.
The money will be paid over a few years. The first cheque, for $15,000, was presented to One Kids Place recently.
