$10,000 is on its way to OutLoud North Bay. 

It’s thanks to a nomination in the TELUS #FriendlyFuture Days contest.  

In May, Telus challenged Canadians to share how they give back to their communities for a chance to win one of ten $10,000 donations to a charity of their choice.

OutLoud North Bay, a safe space driven by 2SLGBTQA+ individuals that is open to all youth in the community, was nominated by Sarah.

“This money comes in handy at a time like this,” says Seth Compton, Executive Director.  “I’ve funded this entire project with a little help from our community.  People don’t realize what it takes to operate a space like this.”

As for what the money will be going towards, he says items always needed are arts and craft supplies, after-school snacks,  cleaning supplies, maybe a newer gaming console, a few skateboards and equipment and operating costs for possibly a month or two. 

“We have been blessed,” says Compton. “When the financial burden is removed from the equation I can focus on why I opened the space and that is to provide the youth with positive things to do for their mental health and well-being.”
