Welcome to the Muay Thai Youth Team Canada Page!
In York Region, hundreds of men, women and children are homeless on any given night, but together, we can change this statistic. Over the next few weeks, members of the Muay Thai Youth Canada Team will be collaborating with Universal Logistics Inc. to participate in the Hockey Helps the Homeless (HHTH) York Region event, raising awareness and funding for two local homeless support agencies: 360°Kids and Blue Door.
Universal Logistics Inc. has always been an organization which prides itself on making a difference. For a number of years, they’ve been a proud supporter of the HHTH Fundraiser event, and for 2020, they will once again be involved as a lead sponsor. As a result of COVID-19, HHTH has had to reimagine what their events could look like in the age of a pandemic. With our safety in mind, HHTH have decided to shift to a virtual fundraiser to fight homelessness. Additionally, Universal Logistics has agreed to make a matching donation for every dollar raised by the Muay Thai Youth Team Canada fundraising team, meaning that your generosity will have twice the impact!
Right now, York Region’s homeless need our help more than ever. Homeless shelters in the city have been drained of funding and resources in order to support the new unprecedented costs they are facing as a result of COVID-19, including additional staffing costs, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), increased sanitation and food security. As we enter the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, our beneficiaries are still recovering from the effects of the first. Since March, they have been working around the clock to ensure our community’s most vulnerable residents are safe, but they can’t do it alone. Any donation, big or small, can take the Universal Fundraising team one step closer to achieving our goal.
Be a game changer today by supporting the cause and help bring hope to our most vulnerable through these difficult times.
Wish to donate by cheque? Cheques should be made payable to Hockey Helps the Homeless and mailed to Head Office at 44 East Beaver Creek, Unit #4, Richmond Hill, Ontario, L4B 1G8. Please specify Muay Thai Youth Team Canada in the memo line. Tax receipts will be issued upon receipt of the donation for all gifts $25 and above.
