15 Wing members bagging groceries for charity

Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign underway at Safeway, Superstore
If you see uniformed soldiers at Safeway and Superstore over the next few days, don’t worry, it’s all for a good cause.

Members of 15 Wing will be bagging groceries to gather funds for the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign, the local military organization’s annual fundraising drive that kicked off on Oct. 24.

Members will be at the two stores from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Nov. 10, with all proceeds split evenly between 211 Saskatchewan -- the website, texting and messaging system designed to help people get in touch with the support they may need -- and local health partners such as the F.H. Wigmore Hospital.

The GCWCC engages federal public service employees and retirees in a combined effort to raise funds and donate time for those in need, with the campaign running nationally from September to December.

15 Wing raised a total of $26,000 for the GCWCC last year alone.

Members of the public can also make a donation by going to the SARCAN Drop-n-Go station in downtown Moose Jaw and drop off their recyclables under the name 2019 GCWCC.
