Why I am doing this:
Hi! My name is Kira Peacock and I’m VP Finance for this year’s Five Days For The Homeless campaign. I’m currently in my first year of my BCom with a major in Accounting. I joined 5D4H because I believe that no youth should go without basic necessities. Without food, shelter and clothing it is very difficult to focus your education, employment and personal dilemmas. Youth Empowerment Support Services provides basic needs and support for Edmonton’s homeless youth so that they can focus on their future. I hope our campaign brings more awareness to YESS and how they support youth homelessness in our community!
What will be the hardest part?
I think the hardest part of this experience will be not losing hope on the days where we get less donations than we had hoped.
