RBC Foundation supports Cranbrook Boys and Girls ClubPosted: July 12, 2012
The Royal Bank RBC Foundation has made a $20,000 donation to the Cranbrook Boys and Girls Club.
“The Royal Bank RBC Foundation has provided a significant boost to help with our after school programs through this very generous grant. This kind of support is essential to the success of these programs,” said Gord Johnston, executive director of the Cranbrook Boys and Girls Club.
The Royal Bank has continued to recognize the importance that quality after school programming plays in life and health of communities.
The Cranbrook Boys and Girls Club provides programs to children, youth and families that support their healthy development, through active living, nutrition and recreation. This includes early childhood programs, child development programs and after school programs.
We strive to provide programs that develop lifelong interests in recreation and leisure activities, and through that address the issues of active living, personal safety and lifelong learning. We understand the importance of physical recreation for children, youth and families. The club encourages daily physical activity through a variety of programs, providing children, youth and families a choice of leisure activities, from team sports, dance and martial arts, to rock climbing and outdoor adventures.
We believe that children, youth and families have a right to move and grow within a safe environment. We believe that we have a role to play in the prevention of violence. We know that our programs and services can and do positively impact children’s peer relationships, emotional adjustment, and conflict resolution skills. Our centres are safe places for children and youth to come and experience life.
