The Northern Neighbors Foundation encourages residents of Flin Flon, Creighton, Denare Beach, Snow Lake, Cranberry Portage and area to make a gift Saturday. That’s the day for Endow Manitoba’s 24 Hour Giving Challenge and their President Jane Robillard says this is a great opportunity to support the Foundation as every five dollars becomes seven. She explains it’s a 24 hour challenge so within that 24 hour period any money that’s donated is matched by one dollar from the government and one dollar from the Winnipeg Foundation but it’s only within that 24 hour period. She says it goes into their community foundation fund, it stays there and all the interest comes back to them and those are the grants they give out each year.
You can donate online at www.endowmanitoba.ca, write a cheque payable to the Winnipeg Foundation dated for Saturday and drop it off at Northern Rainbows End or call the Winnipeg Foundation at 1-877-974-3631 Saturday between 9 and 3. You can call Jane at 204-687-6488 for more information.
