Canadian Tire Jumpstart gives $20k to feed kids

Every child, regardless of their background, deserves to have access to healthy meals. The Soup Haven Lunch Program, which provides a free, nutritious lunch to over 300 Yorkton children every day, received a well deserved boost today.

The Yorkton-Melville Canadian Tire Jumpstart presented a cheque to the Soup Haven Lunch Program on Monday for $20,000 to assist in its operations to the community.

“Thank you to the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Chapter in Yorkton and Melville for believing in our program. We know this money will continue to help nourish the children of Yorkton and surrounding area,” said Marilyn Dyck, program director.

The Soup Haven Lunch Program works closely with schools in the community, and has been feeding children since 1998. It was formed to ensure that no child in need of assistance would go without food.

If you would like to help the cause, Canadian Tire Jumpstart Yorkton invites you to the Jumpstart Community Yard Sale with BBQ on April 25-26. Running from 8 am-4 pm. Refreshments will also be served.

Help along your spring cleaning by donating items you no longer use for a great cause. Canadian Tire will even pick up your stuff.

Contact Violet at (306) 621-3884 or Eva at (306) 621-6671. They’ll help you arrange pickup. All monies raised stay in the community.
