Square One Community Inc. Moose Jaw is a non-profit organization established in 2021. Our mandate is to reduce homelessness in Moose Jaw. Through our own work and assisting other local groups, we are making a difference in our city by supporting those in need.
And the citizens in our city and surrounding areas are supporting Square One. People are learning more about our plans through our social media presence, various events, raffles, and fundraisers, and they feel strongly that there is a huge need for what we are promoting.
Wakamow Market has been a tremendous opportunity to not only raise some funds to support reaching our goals; it has also provided a chance to raise awareness and have conversations with our community members about the work we have embarked on. The people of Moose Jaw have big hearts, and they are desiring to help; they just need and want to know HOW they can help.
Hot Diggity Dog “Spicy Politician” Fundraiser: Moose Jaw North MLA Tim McLeod was asked to choose a feature “hot dog” at Hot Diggity Dog, along with a charity to receive $1.00 per hot dog over the month of June. He chose Square One Community. These sausage with sauerkraut creations are delectable….AND…the purchase of each one was helping us in our mission! Thank you to Johnny Bean of Hot Diggity Dog (204 Manitoba St. W.) and MLA Tim for being so community-minded.
Stronger Together: Our Stronger Together Campaign continues and thanks to Bill and Laurette Keen, over $23,000.00 has been raised for the My Place project of John Howard Society. For more information about sponsoring a gold/silver/bronze leaf on the Stronger Together Trees for yourself, or in memory of a loved one, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. We believe that our community truly IS STRONGER TOGETHER …and we “put our money where our mouth is” through this collaborative effort.
Upcoming Staycation Raffle: Square One is in the final stages of collecting items for our early fall “Staycation” Raffle. Some lucky winner is going to have a fantastic hometown experience right here in Moose Jaw, while everyone who purchases tickets or donates prizes will have contributed to help with our fundraising goal of having an emergency shelter for women.
