Saint Lawrence Centre Donation

Sometime back in March of this year, the New Horizon Co-op was approached by HIV North and the Saint Lawrence Centre with a request for help. The Saint Lawrence Centre which provides shelter, food, showers, and a safe place for our cities homeless and street people to connect with with support services, was under threat of having to cutting back their services from full time hours five days a week of being open through the summer to being only able to operate two days a week through the summer. The New Horizon Co-op saw the need to help the less fortunate in our community and we were happy that we were able to donate the amount of $16,000.00 towards their goal of $41,000.00 to keep open. Through much fundraisng and generous donations from the community they were able to reach their goal! On Tuesday May 1 2018 it was very exciting to present Jared Gossen of the Saint Lawrence Centre a cheque for $16,000.00. On hand to present the cheque to Jared were, from the left, Laurie Gronhovd our GM, Karen Fladager our Director of Operations and Sandy Bennion our Controller.
