Steinbach Community Outreach (SCO) is expressing gratitude for the numerous donations they received this year, which will go towards helping those struggling with homelessness and poverty in Steinbach.
Irene Kroeker, with SCO, said, "We have had donations come in that we can gift to the people that actually need it. And their excitement feeds our excitement. All we can say, which it seems like it's not enough. But we say thank you. Thank you. Thank you for all of the generous donations, monetary and otherwise, because we do have many needs out there this year, many more needs than we used to have."
Kroeker added, "Now we can actually help those some of them on the streets, and some of them in their houses. And they're struggling because it's been a tough year and now we can help them out."
SCO's efforts to assist those in need are made possible through the generosity of the community. The organization is thankful for the support they have received, which will go a long way in helping those in need during these challenging times.
