The MX. Virtual – Lunch & Learn

It’s no secret that COVID-19 has impacted society on all levels. While we collectively worry about rent, groceries, and general safety, organizations that provide essential services to the community have had to face challenges of their own.

Join us on Thursday, June 4, 2020 at 12 PM for The MX. Virtual as we host a virtual panel discussion featuring representatives from the Canadian Mental Health Association, Living Positive Resource Centre, and The Bridge Youth & Family Services. We’ll learn how these groups are coping with the times — and most importantly, how you can access the resources they provide if you are in need.

You’ll also have the opportunity to interact with our guests and have your questions answered during the moderated Q&A session to follow.

There is no cost to join – please pre-register at: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_vLkxZ_yeSS2QLV99DaJeeQ

The MX. is presented by TD Bank, and proudly supported by Okanagan Young Professionals, Sarah Sucloy Real Estate, Friends of Dorothy and EzTix.
