For Immediate Release
June 5, 2020, Kamloops, British Columbia – Today, YKAStrong donated $1270 to the Kamloops Food Bank in support of the Kamloops community and those that need extra assistance during this difficult time. The donation resulted from a partnership with Visual Signs & Printing to produce #ykastrong window decals for businesses. Visual Signs & Printing embraced the opportunity to align with YKAStrong, allowing for funds to be considered to support Kamloops at large.
YKAStrong exists to provide a streamlined communications and engagement strategy addressing COVID-19 and the effects on business in Kamloops. While the priority for this group has been establishing online resources and a united voice in support of business during the pandemic, the group has also identified the importance of highlighting remarkable Kamloopsians and service to the community.
YKAStrong is comprised of leaders representing the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, the City of Kamloops, Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association (KCBIA), North Shore Business Improvement Association (NSBIA), Venture Kamloops, Community Futures – Thompson Country, Kamloops Airport, Thompson Rivers University, Tk’emlups te Secwepemc and Tourism Kamloops.
The donation aligns well with the Support Kamloops campaign launch earlier this week inspiring Kamloops residents to support Kamloops businesses.
