At this week’s Taste of Summer Charity BBQ, $2762.70 was raised and donated to Trailblazers Life Choices.  

Rayann Kuban of Trailblazers is thankful for everyone who came out to support their organization. Smokies were completely sold out before 12pm! 

“Steinbach is wonderful for supporting, so I’m not really surprised, but it’s overwhelming. It’s great,” she says. 

Celine Harris of Trailblazers shares that many of the Trailblazers community came out to help with preparation and enjoy a smokie after their hard work. 

“It means the world and having the people we support out here today and mingling with everyone, and everyone being able to see what Trailblazers is all about, it meant the world to us. It was amazing.” 

Trailblazers is all about inclusion and creating opportunities for everyone. Kuban goes on to share what she loves most about the organization. 

“It’s the people. It’s the whole reason why we’re here. The people we support, they’re fantastic. I really hope that people will open their doors to supporting people with disabilities and whether that be volunteering or even paid employment. That’s always something we’re looking for, for the people we support.” 

The donations are going towards renovations at their day program, including building an accessible kitchen. 

If you missed out this week, don’t worry! Taste of Summer Charity BBQ is happening every Wednesday till the end of August in front of Steinbach Credit Union!  

Come down between 11am and 1pm for a smokie and help support Steinbach YFC at the next BBQ.
