“The donations from Fuel Good Day 2019 will make a difference for families who are struggling in Saskatoon,” says Dionne Miazdyck-Shield, SSPC Executive Director. “We support families who face incredible challenges. We believe families belong together, and when they need tangible support, our programs are available.”
“YWCA is excited to be partnered with Saskatoon Co-op for the Fuel Good Day program. Initiatives such as this help us to provide and continue the necessary programs, which helps the many vulnerable women and families from our community,” says Shannon Friesen, YWCA Saskatoon CEO.
Fuel Good Day was celebrated at more than 400 Co-op Gas Bars throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and northwestern Ontario, with each local co-op supporting a community organization or initiative.
Last year, Co-op locations across Western Canada donated over $600,000 from Fuel Good Day, with nearly $1.2 million donated to 275 local charities and non-profit organizations in the past two years.
The total result from across Western Canada for 2019 will be released in early October and will be available on www.fuel.crs, along with the complete list of supported organization.
