ESTEVAN — In preparation for the new season, Warm Welcome Kitchen is starting a fundraiser to ensure they have the means to pay for their suppers, which are free to anyone in the community.
To raise some money, they decided to run their grocery dash raffle once again, with three prizes available up for grabs.
The first prize will be a two-minute grocery dash at Sobeys. The second prize is a $500 Sobeys gift card, and the third prize is a $250 Sobeys gift card.
The tickets are available for sale through board members or over e-transfer. Tickets are $10 each and will be for sale until 5 p.m. on Nov. 2.
"Without this type of fundraising we can't run the kitchen," said Warm Welcome Kitchen president Wendy Godfrey. "With rising costs, more and more people rely on the kitchen to help stretch their food dollars. But the rising costs are also affecting us, as the cost of providing the meals increases.”
Warm Welcome Kitchen’s 2023-24 season will begin the first week of October with full, hot meals served twice a week at designated locations. Anyone is welcome to come in, enjoy a hot supper and socialize at no cost.
The draw for the grocery dash will take place on Nov. 2, shortly after the closure of the sales.
For more information or to arrange for a ticket purchase, people can contact the board through the Facebook page for Warm Welcome Kitchen, Estevan.
Payment can be made by cash, cheque or e-transfer to email@example.com. People are asked to include their name and number in the comment section of the e-transfers.
