The Yellowknife chapter of 100 Men Who Give a Damn is giving more than $11,000 to the Tree of Peace Friendship Centre to help the organization run its men’s healing program.

Members of 100 Men Who Give a Damn meet quarterly to determine which local charity they’d like to donate to. The expectation is for members to contribute $100 at each of those meetings.

On Wednesday night, members voted to support the Tree of Peace’s A New Day men’s healing program.

Mere hours before members voted, the territorial government announced its long-term commitment to the rehabilitative program.

In its inaugural year, the Yellowknife chapter of 100 Men Who Give a Damn has made the following donations:
