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.
