Square One Community Inc. working to create warming centre for winter

Square One Community Inc. discusses its upcoming activities in the community.

The mission of Square One Community Inc. Moose Jaw is to support and advocate for those who face homelessness and other social barriers. 

While we are looking at the long-term goal of providing a women’s shelter, we also are collaborating with local organizations to develop a warming centre for the winter of 2022-23.

Square One Community Inc. Moose Jaw has had several events and projects to build finances for our future plans.  In the past months, we have had restaurant fundraisers, a quilt raffle, Lunch & Learns, the sale of donated items at the Farmers Market and online, and a garage sale. 

And now: Be sure to get your name in the draw for our autumn raffle fundraiser!  For just $2.00 per ticket, you could win the entire Square One Community Inc. Moose Jaw Staycation Gift Package.  

This package has $1000.00 worth of prizes donated by generous local businesses, individuals and organizations.  

Thanks so much to all that are supporting this important Square One Community Inc. Moose Jaw fundraiser. Tickets are going fast! You can access them by emailing or through any board member.

When ordering tickets through e-transfer, please put “raffle tickets” and the name and phone number of purchaser in the messages box. Details of the raffle are available on our social media. See the access information below.  

Coming soon: Square One Community Inc. Moose Jaw’s Empty Bowls Event on Nov. 19. The purpose of Empty Bowls is to raise funds for charities and to educate people around issues of poverty and homelessness in their community. 

At the event, the guests purchase a bowl and fill it with soup, then sit with others to discuss the needs of those facing social barriers. If you are interested in helping with this event as a chef, restaurant owner, volunteer or vendor to rent a table, contact

Ongoing fundraisers include the opportunity to make contributions to the donation boxes set up in various Moose Jaw businesses, and the Sarcan Drop & Go: enter Square One Community on the computer screen, and then attach the printed barcodes to your containers, and you have supported Square One Community Inc. Moose Jaw.    

Following a very positive recent change (attaining Municipal Project Status with the City of Moose Jaw), donors can now receive a tax receipt from a donation to our organization by making cheques payable to “City of Moose Jaw,” and mail to or drop off at City Hall, 228 Main St. N., Moose Jaw, S6H 3JB.

Please be sure to note RE: SQUARE ONE COMMUNITY on the memo line.
