Celebrate the holidays with Cravings, support the Y
Cravings Fine Food and the YMCA of Simcoe Muskoka have teamed up to offer a festive way to support the the 100 Reasons Y campaign to build a new Barrie YMCA.
For the month of December, 10% of sales generated from Cravings’ Holiday Dinner packages will be donated to the 100 Reasons Y campaign, and Cravings' president and owner Jennifery Allen-Long will match each dollar raised with a personal donation of her own.
When asked for her “reason” for supporting the Y, Allen-Long shared that she and her family have benefited from the YMCA’s programs and services.
”The YMCA has always been a key part of my life and a foundation for understanding community. From swimming lessons on Grove Street to summer camp, personal fitness to leadership development at Geneva Park, the YMCA has kept me and my extended family healthy for generations.”
Cravings and the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka have a long-standing relationship. For many years the local catering company supported the YMCA’s Spotlight Gala. This spring, when the YMCA announced it was going to deliver emergency child care for the families of frontline workers, Cravings reached out and offered to cater the program.
“We are incredibly grateful that the team at Cravings has choosen the YMCA as their charity of choice this holiday season.” said Brian Shelley, YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka Vice President. “The fact that Jenn will be matching every dollar raised through this initiative with her own personal donation speaks to her character and commitment to the people of Barrie.”
