As promised on my Instagram stories, here is all the info on helping one of my favourite organizations The OLQP North Ranch. Our Lady Queen of Peace Ranch Northern Alberta (OLQP North Ranch) is a registered nonprofit charity that partners with agencies throughout Edmonton area to provide a unique, enriching camp experience to thousands of children each year who require financial, emotional or social support. Contrary to the sound of their name, they are a non-religious charity and do not offer any faith based programming. Along with programming, they connect their clients with everyday necessities throughout the year: clothing, toys, household items, etc.
Find them socially on Instagram & Twitter at @OLQPNorthRanch and on Facebook at Facebook.com/OLQPNorthRanch
