Each year there are many Emergency Accoomodation needs in the Edmonton area for women. We support WEAC buy making in kind donation of materials as they identify needs that we can fulfil for them. In recent years we have been able to allocate an amount of budget to WEAC as the need has risen to our attention. Together with your monetary donations and gifts we have spent the time and effort to not only redirect the funds but to also go do the shopping and deliver what is needed precisely when it is needed. We expect to be in a position to continue supporting WEAC each year. Please help us by donating to this project today.
For a number of years now we have been honoured to be able to provide support with purchases of in-kind materials that Win House has indicated would fulfill some Project shortfall or other. Quite often the call has come for dishes, bed sheets, pots and pans. Almost anything commonly needed at a new home that a family needs. As part of our onging effort to honour Melinda's memory, the donations and contributions that you provide buy the materials needed and our family matches those monetary donations with time and effort to get the items purchased where they are needed most. Please help us with this project with your next donation. Melinda's Birthday Bash is coming soon. Please donate this coming September 16th.
Melinda worked at Second Cup at the Churchill Square location in Edmonton. From the time she was 15 until her accident at 20, it had been her first and only "real job". She grew and matured during those years and the things she learned and experiences that she had at that job changed her and became a part of her. To honor those she worked with, worked for, and learned from, we have established a bursary program available to employees of Second Cup. Melinda had plans and dreams for herself so our family has chosen to help other baristas achieve theirs. If you are a Second Cup Barista and would like to apply please click "Read More" to access the online application form. Please note that only successful applicants will be contacted.
Approximately 20% of all school aged children in Alberta go to school hungry. In Edmonton, 1 in 6 children lives in poverty.
The school lunch/snack program we support provides nearly 400,000 lunches to high needs children each year and over 1 million snacks to help students learn and reach their potential.
It is our goal to eliminate as much overhead cost as possible while still helping those who need it most. With the money raised and earmarked for this project, we will be purchasing food and supplies to donate to E4C’s school program. This way, all money goes directly to the children without a portion going to administration costs.
Stay tuned to hear how much we raise on Melinda Green Day, on September 16th, and how the proceeds are used.
You too can help support our projects.
