The Northern Neighbors Foundation encourages residents of Flin Flon, Creighton, Denare Beach, Snow Lake, Cranberry Portage and area to make a gift Saturday as part of the Endow Manitoba 24 Hour Giving Challenge. Their Chairperson Jane Robillard says this is a great opportunity to support the Foundation. She explains for one day only, that’s Saturday November 18th, gifts made to our Foundation’s unrestricted fund will be stretched by the Winnipeg Foundation, one dollar for every five dollars donated and new this year the Province of Manitoba will also stretch each five dollar gift by one dollar so that means any money donated on that day within the 24 hour period a five dollar gift becomes seven.
You can donate online at www.endowmanitoba.ca, write a cheque payable to the Winnipeg Foundation dated for Saturday and drop it off at the Home Care office at 50 Church Street until 4:30 Friday afternoon or call Jane at 204-687-6488 or the Winnipeg Foundation at 1-877-974-3631 Saturday between 9 and 3. Robillard adds donations made Saturday will help grow the Foundation’s capacity to support a wide range of charitable projects in our communities for generations to come.
