The Foundation envisions a vital community where everyone can belong. SSCF contributes to building community vitality by identifying priorities and working to respond to critical issues in our community. Our 2016 Regina Area Vital Signs Report, summarizes important priorities -- this year focusing on a central theme of “Belonging” and sub-themes of building economic inclusion, pursuing reconciliation and welcoming newcomers.
The SSCF knows the Saskatchewan Red Cross is well-aligned with the priority of “Belonging” as well.
Today, we are celebrating a grant for $15,000 which was recommended by the Lloyd and Duna Barber Family Fund to celebrate “GivingTuesday” this past November 28th, 2016. This grant will be matched by the Red Cross’ corporate partner, BMO, for a total investment of $30,000.
The Red Cross is there for our community during challenging times and works hard to help make our community a healthier, more vital place to live through its anti-bullying advocacy and other programs. When we consider how to build a Saskatchewan where everyone has the opportunity to belong, the Red Cross is a key partner for us at the Community Foundation.
