Business teams up with Mental Wellness Centre

The Cherry Lane Liquor Store is donating money to the Mental Wellness Centre.

 

 

The Mental Wellness Centre and Cherry Lane Liquor Store are teaming up to help those with mental illness in the community.

The store’s customers are asked to advise the cashier that they support the Wellness Centre and a donation of three percent of the purchase price will go to the organization.

That money along with grants from the City of Penticton, Telus and other local businesses and individuals will go to help fund the Martin House Youth Mental Health Support Program which is available to those 16-30 years old struggling with a mental illness.

The centre also offers support and programs for individuals of all ages experiencing mental illness along their families.

For more information call 250-493-7338, e-mail bcsspenticton@shaw.ca visit the website www.mentalwellnesscentresos.com or drop in to the Mental Wellness Centre at 118 – 246 Martin St. between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday to Friday.
