It was an encouraging Tuesday evening for the Warm Welcome Kitchen program, who received a large donation from the Estevan United Way.
They donated $1,000 from the 'Community Impact Fund'
"(It's) huge, because it keeps the program going," stated Coordinator Christa Jorgensen, "Not only do my volunteers...but donations like this."
She said that the proceeds will head straight for the food, and will assist in feeding approximately 100 people per week that arrive to get a hot meal.
"We're so thankful for this to be in our community," added Travis Frank, the President of United Way Estevan, "This really fits in line with United Way's values, so we really wanted to make sure that we continue to support and see that it survives in our community, because it's doing so well."
The Warm Welcome Kitchen runs Tuesdays at St. Giles Anglican Church, and Thursdays at Trinity Lutheran Church.
