Siloam Mission was one of three organizations presented funds raised by the Manitoba Heroes committee’s gala dinner on Oct. 26 at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg.  

Since 1987, the Christian humanitarian organization at 300 Princess Ave. has provided meals, clothing and other services to Winnipeg’s poor and homeless peoples.

"Siloam Mission is extremely grateful to Manitoba Heroes for this $20,000 donation," said Judy Richichi, Siloam’s director of development and finance.

"This will help us continue our meal program, where we have seen an increase in usage from last year. It will also help us to continue to run other vital services, like the drop-in centre and overnight emergency shelter."

Winnipeg Blue Bomber Alumni and the Little Heroes program also received cheques from Manitoba Heroes.

Despite this welcome donation, Richichi said Siloam Mission is in need of more money from business and the general public.

"While Siloam Mission has received a lot of clothing and food donations, cash donations are down slightly from last year, and that’s concerning, especially around this time of year," Richichi said.

Donations can be made at Siloam Mission from Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
