Only smiles at CityKidz this summer! For the second year in a row, HOPA Ports had the pleasure of collaborating with CityKidz for their Summer to Remember Camp program.

The CityKidz Summer to Remember Camp program is a transformative initiative, providing children from underserved neighbourhoods with a unique opportunity to take part in enriching summer activities while creating long-lasting memories. By supporting this program, HOPA Ports and its Partners demonstrate a shared vision of building a strong, inclusive and vibrant community by investing in the well-being and potential of our youth.

This year, HOPA Ports and its Partners raised more than $15,000 for Camp CityKidz, making camp accessible for children in grades 1 to 6, living in Hamilton. Camp CityKidz includes meals, snacks and door to door transportation for 200 children.

“On behalf of our generous Port Partners, HOPA Ports is honoured to renew its support for the CityKidz Summer to Remember Camp program,” said Larissa Fenn, VP of Corporate Affairs. “We firmly believe every child deserves a chance to create cherished memories and develop valuable skills, regardless of their socio-economic background. We are proud of CityKidz’ dedication to empowering youth in our community and creating unforgettable experiences this summer.”

The CityKidz Summer to Remember Camp program aligns perfectly with HOPA’s mission to be a catalyst for economic and community growth. By investing in initiatives that promote positive change, HOPA Ports and its Partners contribute to a stronger, more resilient society.
