"It allows us to provide healthy snacks for children in all of our childcare programs."  explains Danielle Miranda, General Manager of Childcare at the YMCA of Okanagan.  " We purchase local healthy snacks, and make sure the children receive a well rounded assortment of foods."

The YMCA of Okanagan has been receiving funds from the campaign since 2013.

More than $235,000 has been raised locally.
