A total of $825 was raised through the sales of 50/50 tickets. In addition, Dunlop later presented the YMCA with a $500 donation. These funds will help families in Medicine Hat send their kids to camp. “Thank you to Dunlop Truck Centre for their recent donation of $500 and support through 50/50 sales at the Customer Appreciation Day to the YMCA of Medicine Hat Strong Kids Campaign,” said Helene Nicholson, Philanthropy Director at the YMCA of Medicine Hat. “The Strong Kids Campaign provides financial assistance for anyone facing barriers that make paying regular membership or program fees a challenge.
