Kicking Horse Ford supports GWRC

Kicking Horse Ford is supporting the Golden Women's Resource Centre with a month-long initiative.

Kicking Horse Ford has decided to make November a month of giving.

The dealership will be donating $100 from every new and pre-owned vehicle sold throughout November to the Golden Women’s Resource Centre.

“Kicking Horse Ford salutes the great and much needed efforts of the Golden Women’s Resource Centre,” said Dan Maissoneuve, dealer principle at Kicking Horse Ford.

“Our goal is to raise enough money to cover their operating costs for a month.”

The Golden Women’s Resource Centre is a not-for-profit that provides Golden women with vital services such as a Safe Homes 24-hour Emergency Crisis Line, an Emergency Shelter for women and children fleeing violence, Outreach Services, Crisis Counseling, Personal Development Workshops, Job Sear Assistance, Computer Access, and much more.

The centre operates on federal and provincial funding, grants from organizations like the Columbia Basin Trust, and their own fundraising initiatives, the biggest of which is the Starlight Soiree event on Nov. 22.

Support from companies like Kicking Horse Ford make a significant impact on the centre’s ability to administer their services.

The Golden Women’s Resource Centre is also asking for the community’s help with their Community Coordination for Safety in Relationships Project. Please go to http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GoldenCommunitySurvey to fill out the anonymous survey regarding gender-based violence in Golden. When you’re done you can enter to win a $100 from Sobey’s.
