Legacy Co-op has made a donation of $5,000 towards Bruno’s Place.
Bruno’s Place is a safe, low barrier emergency shelter located in Yorkton that provides food and support services to uphold the dignity of every person. This project is a collaboration with agencies such as SIGN, Mental Health and Addiction Services, The City of Yorkton and others working together to help meet the needs of individuals facing homelessness in our community.
“Unfortunately, our community has seen a growing need for emergency shelter options”, stated Bruce Thurston, General Manager of Legacy Co-op.
“When crisis hits, people sometimes have nowhere to turn, and this facility will provide a safe area” continued Thurston.
As part of our sustainability pillar, Legacy Co-op has dedicated $270,000 from the 2021 profits for donations and sponsorships to serve, grow and invest in the community. A portion of this annual amount creates the Co-op Community Fund, for donations of $5,000 or more, established to assist with projects of a substantial nature.
“Legacy Co-op provides support for important community initiatives through its Co-op Community Fund program each year, and we are pleased to contribute funds for Bruno’s Place” stated Clark Anderson, Chair of the Board.
