Letter: V2A Homes for the Homeless

Thanks to those who helped provide a little comfort to Penticton’s homeless

V2A Homes for the Homeless

Once again, we want to thank those who supported our V2A Homes for the Homeless fundraiser, held recently during the month of December.

Our family created little houses from recycled materials to sell for a minimum $5 donation, with all proceeds to the Salvation Army. This year we were able to raise $2,256 to help provide a little comfort to Penticton’s homeless during the cold winter months.

The spirit of giving and concern for Penticton’s homeless was overwhelming. We really appreciated all who purchased houses with generous donations.

Based on the success of this fundraiser, we will continue with this fundraiser same time next year.

Viv, Dave and Heather Lieskovsky
