Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from NEBA!
We at NEBA are looking forward to the Christmas & Holiday Season this unpredictable and unprecedented 2020 to recharge and re-energize for the New Year. 2020 has affected all of us and NEBA felt it deeply. Since the new Executive Committee was cemented in November of this year, NEBA has re-established our presence in North Edmonton; updated our website neba.ca, established new connections and resumed communications with members, charities, businesses and government officials. We have also been busy planning for an exciting 2021! Stay tuned to our next newsletter where we will be asking for some feedback from you.
We would like to wish you & yours a very warm, safe & healthy Christmas, Holiday Season and may 2021 be the rebound we all wish for.
Jerry Forbes is NEBA's charity of choice.
Jerry Forbes Centre for Community Spirit located on the north side of Edmonton is the proud home of 23 non-profit organizations! What was once the J Ennis Fabrics warehouse has been repurposed and extensively renovated to be a hub for non-profit organizations to work together, inspire each other, and learn through innovation.
Jerry Forbes Foundation is a little different in that they do not directly serve individuals or families; however, they are the home for the organizations that do. Jerry Forbes Foundation offers a dependable and affordable home where non-profit organizations can thrive and not just survive during these challenging economic times.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 for our COVID Comeback Campaign.
If you haven’t topped up your charitable donations for 2020, this is the perfect opportunity to maximize your tax credits before the end of the year while supporting local like never before.
A Message from NEBA President, Timothy Wong:
I would really like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank Keomi Grad of Rising Sun Consulting and Gerald Pagdato of Inumin Media. Keomi and Gerald are true stars of NEBA and have been instrumental in re-establishing NEBA's presence. Join me in giving them a big standing ovation! Personally, I would like to wish you & yours a safe and healthy holiday season. It has been exciting actively working on NEBA since November and I am very much looking forward to what NEBA can do for all of us in 2021. Let's work together to grow and support local northside businesses in 2021!
