To celebrate the giving season, each DCG Associate was given the opportunity to choose a charity for DCG to financially support. Each told the story why they chose that particular charity. The stories that were shared were inspiring and a reminder of the importance charities play in our communities. Also, a reminder about the impact donors can have, through sharing their time, talent and treasure!
The charities we chose to support include: Guadalupe Parish, Special Olympics Saskatchewan, Saskatoon Crisis Nursery, Saskatoon Food Bank, Camp Kadesh, OUT Saskatoon Pride Home, EGADZ Sweet Dreams Program, The Global Gathering Place, YWCA Saskatoon, John Partington Loved Kids Fund (Saskatoon Community Foundation), Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon Interval House, The Bridge on 20th, Saskatoon Friendship Inn, Saskatoon Sexual Assault Centre and AGMITS (Saskatchewan Hospital).
We enjoyed the Saskatoon Friendship Inn Holiday Dinner on December 13, and we “Filled the Plate” on December 14 by serving lunch and sponsoring the Day at the Inn.
