Campaigns by local businesses are helping to ensure those who need the support of the South Okanagan Women In Need Society will get to enjoy the holidays.
“We believe a healthy, vibrant community is in everyone’s best interest. It’s therefore important to all of us here at Morrison Real Estate Group that we seek out opportunities to give back to our community,” said Eric Bifford. “To that end, we are very excited to raise awareness of a great grassroots organization, SOWINS, and all that it does for Penticton.”
Morrison Real Estate Group was collecting monetary donations for SOWINS and matched up to $1,000, bringing their total donation to $2,000.
“This Christmas season we’re proud to announce that we’ve almost hit our SOWINS fundraising target, matching contributions from individuals with our own. We encourage anyone looking to give to a great organization to connect with SOWINS and Share the Spirit this holiday season.”
Also participating is Parker’s Chrysler Dodge Jeep with their Jam the Ram toy drive campaign that will provide toys for children that might not otherwise receive them for Christmas. Shoppers Drug Mart also has a Fill a Shoebox campaign.
