Altona's Youth For Christ - The Station has essentially met its $275,000 fundraising goal to being renovating a new facility. Executive Director Sheridan Sawatzky says a recent $50,000 donation from Access Credit Union propelled them toward the phase one goal. The new facility is a former Friesens building located at the corner of 2nd Avenue SE and 6th Street SE.
"It's just a great community initiative," said Curt Letkeman, a member of the Access Credit Union Community Investment Committee. "The YFC program, and similar programs, have been running in Altona since I was a youth. It's great to see the number of youth that show up, and the work the leaders are doing in the community, and Access is all about building communities. It was just a great fit for us to partner with them to further this initiative."
