Shop From Home

Pipestone Flyer

 

Christmas is just around the corner but you can do some shopping from the comfort of your home. Debbie Pearson, Fund and Communications Coordinator of the Wetaskiwin Boys and Girls Club explains how easy it is to do your shopping online while supporting a worthy cause.  “Using the website www.wetaskiwinyouth.ca people can log on and bid on 50 items having a fair market value of more than $10,500. The Boys & Girls Club and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Wetaskiwin will be holding their 7th Annual “U Care” Online Auction beginning November 6th and running through to November 14th.” 

Debbie suggests, “One of the feature items includes a round-trip voucher for 2 people from Edmonton to any destination that Westjet fly’s including Hawaii and the Caribbean donated by Westjet airlines.” But if someone on your Christmas list is a hockey fan the feature item would likely be the autographed photo of Taylor Hall. 

“Another fantastic item this year is the VIA Rail Canada round-trip travel voucher for 4 people from Edmonton to Vancouver.” Check the website. With over 50 items up for grabs, there is something for everyone on your Christmas list. Other items include a natural gas BBQ, laptop computer, a 3-night stay in beautiful Invermere, flowers once a month for a year, gift certificates, toys, home décor, theatre tickets, and more.  

Proceeds used to provide programs to over 1200 children, youth and families  

Proceeds are used to purchase much needed books, craft supplies, board games and nutritious snacks. Funds also enable the youth and families to participate in special outings such as bowling and swimming.   The programs, run under the mandate of two highly respected national organizations are available to all community members and run year-round but are solely dependent on funds raised through events, grant proposals or donations.

The Boys and Girls Club of Wetaskiwin was established in 1988 as a Society along with Big Brothers Big Sisters, It serves as a much-needed affordable community based service for children, youth and families in the City of Wetaskiwin and area. The positive relationships that children and youth develop with the dedicated, trained staff and volunteers have shown to have a deeply beneficial influence on their lives.
