“For many years, the Youth Empowerment & Support Services has found a uniquely helpful and supportive partner in Islay Agencies. Everyone at Islay works diligently to ensure that, despite budget constraints, YESS is able to reward staff, recognize supporters, and include high-quality branded merchandise in event auctions. As well, as a frequent “Gift Sponsor” at YESS fundraising events, Islay provides fun mementos to event guests, helping to keep YESS top-of-mind with our supporters.

“The service Islay provides goes above and beyond the efficient processing of an order – they provide us with advice that helps us create the impact we seek. They also helps us to take advantage of sales and promotions, allowing us to stretch our promotional budget and do some very cool things! Islay is more than just a supplier – they are a trusted partner who help us achieve important objectives at many levels. Thanks, Islay, for everything!”
