Fri, Aug 17: Dozens of youth and community members from Mulgrave Park celebrated “Spread the Love” day in downtown Halifax on Friday. Alicia Draus reports. Click here to watch.
Spread the Love, a program created by the youth of Mulgrave Park is about changing perspectives. Residents of Mulgrave Park see their community as centered on family, unity, compassion, and strength. For many of Mulgrave Park’s residents, their home is misunderstood because its reputation is focused on a difficult history - one that doesn’t paint the whole picture or tell the story of the Mulgrave Park of today.
Atlantic Drag Star is the biggest drag competition to hit the east coast and it's happening in support of Phoenix Youth Programs. CTV Morning Live's, Katie Kelly sat down with Atlantic Drag Star creator Vald Snytkin and host Glitter Gary. Click here to watch.
Katie, Creston and others are sleeping outside for 5 days.
Recognizing that this initiative is very different from the experience of homelessness, the campaign seeks to raise awareness of and funds needed to fight homelessness.
Thank you Global Halifax for helping us share the message. Big props to the Dalhousie Commerce Society for this partnership to support youth, now in its 5th year!
