Comments Off on HOPA renews commitment to support CityKidz program

The Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority (HOPA Ports), in collaboration with its Partners, is proud to announce its renewed commitment to support the CityKidz Summer to Remember Camp program for the second consecutive year.

The CityKidz Summer to Remember Camp program is a transformative initiative, providing children from underserved neighbourhoods with a unique opportunity to take part in enriching summer activities while creating long-lasting memories. By supporting this program, HOPA Ports and its Partners, demonstrate a shared vision of building a strong, inclusive and vibrant community by investing in the well-being and potential of our youth.

This year, HOPA Ports and its Partners raised more than $15,000 for Camp CityKidz, making camp accessible for children in grades 1 to 6, living in Hamilton. Camp CityKidz includes meals, snacks and door to door transportation for 200 children.

“On behalf of our generous Port Partners, HOPA Ports is honoured to renew its support for the CityKidz Summer to Remember Camp program,” said Larissa Fenn, VP of Corporate Affairs. “We firmly believe every child deserves a chance to create cherished memories and develop valuable skills, regardless of their socio-economic background. We are proud of CityKidz’ dedication to empowering youth in our community and creating unforgettable experiences this summer.”

“Summer is a time for kids to play, explore, learn new skills and develop friendships,” expressed Laura Carmichael, Associate Executive Director at CityKidz. “Camp is the place that rich memories are made, and there are endless opportunities to grow and experience adventures big and small. Camp CityKidz provides inspirational experiences throughout the summer months, reminding kids that they are seen, loved, and that it is great to be a kid. We are very grateful to the Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority and their Partners, who supported camp CityKidz, as well as many other generous supporters and volunteers in our community. They have made camp a reality for so many deserving kids.”

The CityKidz Summer to Remember Camp program aligns perfectly with HOPA’s mission to be a catalyst for economic and community growth. By investing in initiatives that promote positive change, HOPA Ports and its Partners contribute to a stronger, more resilient society.
