This year, HPA celebrates an important milestone in its partnership with City Kidz, explains HPA President & CEO Bruce Wood: “We have hit the half-million dollar mark in our investment in City Kidz. This is an organization that is doing great work throughout the City of Hamilton, including in the North End, so we’re really pleased to see it grow and thrive. And we’re pleased to be an ongoing contributor to City Kidz’ work.”
Over the past five years, HPA has supported City Kidz’ work through a combination of charitable contributions and in-kind support. It is a partnership that continues today.
“We are especially proud of our leading $60,000 donation to the establishment of the City Kidz Youth Studio, a sustainable project that positions City Kidz to reach out to more children than ever before,” said Bruce Wood. With the new studio space, the Youth Leadership Development program provides meaningful learning experiences for Hamilton youth 14 and up.
