*We are NOT accepting any in-kind donations at this time.
The 1Up Centre at 602 Gorge Road remains closed due to building issues that have now become critical due to new information regarding building safety. The Board of Directors and staff are working diligently to ensure a long-term location, and are actively working with our community partners to address the challenges we are facing. General inquiries can be made via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through Facebook.
We thank you for thinking of us and for your support!
