A big shout out to the Town of Newmarket for hosting a ‘Wellness Fair’ for their employees yesterday at the Newmarket office on Mulock Drive. As part of the event, York Region Money Coaches was invited to set up a booth for a couple of hours and discuss the benefits of Money Coaching to employees of the Town.

Giving back is just the right thing to do

To draw support for a local charity, $100 was donated by York Region Money Coaches to Habitat for Humanity – helping them in their campaign to collect 10 million pennies, equal to the cost of building a new home.

To make it fun, we filled a martini glass with pennies and had booth visitors guess how many were in the glass. Tracey Wakayama from Newmarket had the closest guess to the actual number in the glass (1,587) so she will receive the charitable receipt for the $100 donation. She will also receive a free 2-hour Money Coaching session with the owner/founder of York Region Money Coaches, Trevor Van Nest, CFP®.

Supporting local charities should be an important part of all successful businesses. Being part of the community means also giving back to it – whether it is time donated, dollars donated or talents donated. York Region Money Coaches has been a proud supporter of Habitat for Humanity since 2011. They do wonderful work – providing affordable housing to low-income families, helping to break the cycle of poverty. There are currently 7,000 families on the waiting list for social housing in York Region.

If this is a charity you would like to support, please drop by your rolled or unrolled pennies to the Re-Store at 776 Davis Drive in Newmarket. Brian and his team will thank you there! Or better yet, ask your work colleagues, friends and family to be part of your own local penny drive to help out Habitat for Humanity and drop off even more!

Thank you for whatever you do to make this community a better place to live and work.
