Please help us support CMHA York and South Simcoe by making a contribution to our Vince's Market Team fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar we raise will advance CMHA York and South Simcoe's great cause!
Our Vince's Team looks forward to participating in the Mental Health in Motion event to support CMHA York and South Simcoe. In addition to participating in the walk, Vince's Market has assigned our annual Community Product Initiative to support Canadian Mental Health Association, York Region and South Simcoe.
Our Community Product Initiative is a program create by Vince's, whereby different products throughout the year are sold as the Community Product and 15% of the sales are donated to a receiving charity. Our product partner vendors also contribute donations to the cause, leading to a total team effort in raising funds for a great cause.
Vince’s takes very seriously the mental health challenges that affect so many Canadians – in particular young Canadians, who face a suicide rate that is the third highest in the industrialized world. “Even before the pandemic, Canadian youth were experiencing a mental health crisis, marked by high rates of depression, eating disorders, suicide and obstacles in accessing youth-specific mental health services,” says Rebecca Shields, CEO Canadian Mental Health Association, York and South Simcoe. “The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, isolation and disruption of school, workplaces and social recreation are exacerbating this mental health crisis. We are grateful for this year-long partnership with Vince’s Market, which is raising much needed funds to support MOBYSS and increase awareness within our community about this unique and lifesaving service for youth.”
We expect to raise over $25,000 through our Community Product Initiative throughout 2022. Find out more at: vincesmarket.ca/community-product
