Tuesday evening was a great night for many in the community as the Estevan Lions handed out $20,000 in donations.
"At the dinner, Envision Counselling was very fortunate to be one of the community groups that the Lions honoured with a donation," explained Tania Andrist, Resource Development Coordinator for Envision Counselling and Support Centre.
The organization received a $1,000 donation from the Lions Club.
"We are so grateful for the Lions. They take care of their community, they look into the community and see what's needed out here."
"Some of the things that money goes towards when the Lions make a donation like that, is our educational programming, our counselling programs for women, families, individuals."
She added that Envision is already planning their educational presentations in various school around Estevan.
"We talk to kids at most of the schools in Estevan about things such as consent, healthy relationship boundaries, cyber violence. We're excited to be back in the school and to be receiving funding that will help these programs because we don't get government funding for those kids of programs. We rely on donations from the community, and outside."
Andrist is also looking forward to the upcoming United Way Telethon.
"We are very grateful to be a United Way member agency and as we work towards the Telethon, later in October. We just want to be part of this community here that is so generous, thinking about the needs of the community."
