5th Annual Charity All-Star Game
In November or 2017, our 360ydc community (players, parents, coaches and volunteers) once again combined their hearts and hands to raise over $10, 000 for Simcoe Hall Settlement House & Oxfam Canada.

About Oxfam Canada:
Oxfam Canada is part of a global movement for change made up of 20 Oxfam affiliate organizations working in more than 90 countries to mobilize the power of people against poverty. Here is at least one of the area in which Oxfam makes a tremendous difference:
Saving lives: When emergencies happen, Oxfam is among the first on the scene. With your help, we provide clean water, sanitation, and health care. We deliver aid, support, and protection to people who’ve lost everything, particularly women who are often the most at risk in emergencies and conflicts. And when the urgent, life-saving work is over, we stay to help communities rebuild their livelihoods while working to ensure that women’s rights are taken into account. Training people in skills like first aid, search and rescue, and evacuation techniques. We make sure that when disaster strikes, poor communities are ready. We put women at the centre of reconstruction, and in efforts to build resilience to future disasters.
