Riverview Ford Lincoln gives back with a lead gift of $5000 to the YMCA of Fredericton’s

 “Help Send a Kid to Camp” Campaign.

Every child deserves the chance to play with friends, learn new skills, become independent and feel good about themselves. Summer Camp provides the opportunity for children to thrive, all while having fun! This year, as part of the YMCA of Fredericton’s “Strong Communities Campaign”, Riverview Ford Lincoln will be kicking off “Help Send a Kid to Camp Campaign” with a generous lead gift of $5000.  This allows for several children, who may not otherwise have the financial resources to attend camp this summer, experience the gift of friendship and magic that summer camp offers.

The YMCA of Fredericton is grateful for Riverview Ford Lincoln’s support of this initiative. Chris and Aneta Gauthier are proud of their family business and recognize that in order for healthy communities to flourish, families comes first. “We have 3 boys of our own, and going to camp has made a difference in their lives. We want to be able to give other kids the opportunity to have that experience.   It is especially important in the current state of our world for kids to have something fun to look forward to and if we can play a small part in enabling that, we are more than happy to participate. In February, we started a Kindness Campaign at Riverview Ford Lincoln to spread kindness across local businesses and local initiatives. We feel it is very important to be a positive member of the local community and support the community that supports us. It’s our way of giving back.”

The YMCA of Fredericton is a natural choice for this lead gift. When Chris and Aneta from Riverview Ford Lincoln consider the YMCA, they see that it is synonymous with kids and community; and it aligns with their sense of responsibility to support local initiatives. “The Y’s goals to help people become healthier in spirit, mind and body is at the forefront of everyone’s minds, including ours. Our family values and community spirit are a perfect partnership with the “Y”.

Chris and Aneta, along with their team at Riverview Ford Lincoln, encourage others to donate to this important cause.  Please consider giving a child the gift of friendship, memories and magic by experiencing YMCA of Fredericton Summer Camp.
