Fake fundraiser claiming to work for Siloam, says mission

  • Print

A Winnipeg soup kitchen is warning Winnipeggers about a recent scam targeting charitable local folk.

On Tuesday, Siloam Mission said it had received reports that someone has been going door-to-door in Winnipeg neighbourhoods, asking for donations for the Exchange District mission. But Siloam does not use any door-to-door fundraisers, it said – and warned the solicitors could be scamming.

"Please don’t believe anyone who is knocking on your door and asking donations for Siloam," said executive director Floyd Perras, encouraging anyone who spots one of these solicitors to contact the mission.

Those wishing to donate to Siloam can do so securely by visiting www.siloam.ca, calling 204-956-4344 or dropping by the mission at 300 Princess Street.
