The Communithon Committee has been able to partner with local financial institutions, or HUBS as they have named them, who have agreed to accept individual or personal donations via Cash or Cheque.
Those locations include: Bank of Montreal, Scotia Bank, and Weyburn Credit Union. They would like to remind all donors that all cheque donations be made out to the United Way of Regina. Donations will be accepted at the HUBS from now until Oct. 27, 2021.
The finance committee will again be offering two other ways to donate the day of Communithon on Friday, Oct. 29. They will have curbside drop off available, where donors can come down to the Legion, give them a wave or honk and they will have someone come out to your car, get the donation, have it processed inside, and return to the vehicle with a tax receipt.
The second service will be donation pick ups. They will have members of the team available to pick up donations from a donor’s home. Donors can call in a pledge during Communithon and ask for the pickup service. The team will be providing pickups throughout the event at 1 p.m., 5 p.m., and 8 p.m.
As always they certainly welcome people to come to the Legion the day of Communithon to drop off their donation, as they will still be set up on location to receive donations as usual. Residents can always donate through the Communithon website by credit card at www.communithon.com.
The Communithon Committee is looking forward to another success event and supports many community organizations.
The 11 Community Agencies for 2021 are: Big Brothers Big Sisters Weyburn, Canadian Mental Health Association, Canadian Red Cross, Community Low Income Centre, CNIB Foundation, Envision Counselling and Support Centre, Inclusion Weyburn, Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan, Weyburn Care-a-Van, Weyburn Special Care Home Auxiliary, and Weyburn Youth Centre.
The committee wants to provide convenient, accessible and easy ways to donate to this community event so if donors are wanting to make a donation to Communithon this year, please visit one of the above hubs, go online to www.communithon.com, stop by for curb side drop off, come see the event in person at the Legion, or call in the day of Communithon and have your donation picked up right from your house.
