The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation donated $5,000.00 to the Crystal Kids Youth Centre today to assist the organization in providing inner-city children, youth, and families with an opportunity to grow, learn, and play in a safe, supportive, and friendly environment.
Crystal Kids Youth Centre is a 9000 square foot facility, located on 118th Avenue, that offers recreational and leisure programs for inner-city youth at no cost. Families can participate in a wide variety of physical activities, including floor hockey, basketball and volleyball, or they can make use of the extensive leisure facilities, including a computer lab, reading library, arts and crafts, and much more.
“We’re proud to support the Crystal Kids Youth Centre, and all the great things they do in the community,” said Darryl Lindenbach, Executive Director of the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation. “The Centre provides inner-city youth with a safe environment to spend their free time in, and a wealth of facilities to encourage their learning and growth.”
