Saskatoon Soup Sisters
The Saskatoon team enjoyed an evening of soup-making at Soup Sisters on February 12, 2018.
Saskatoon’s Foundation core connector, Carolyn Dunn, attended a similar event last October in Kelowna.
“I shared my experience with our team and researched opportunities with Soup Sisters in Saskatoon,” says Carolyn. With a positive response from colleagues, a date on the calendar was booked.
The Saskatoon Soup Sisters chapter partners with the Saskatoon Interval House and Adelle House to supply soup for their residents.
Saskatoon Interval House is an emergency, temporary shelter for women and their children who require safe accommodation away from domestic violence. Interval House also provides counselling, advocacy, information and crisis calls services.
Adelle House is a twelve-unit apartment building operated by Interval House as second stage housing. It is for women moving on from abusive relationships and provides an opportunity to work together to develop a safe, enriched community for themselves and their children.
“This was a good event to volunteer for,” says Chad Watson. “It allowed the office to socialize while helping out with a good cause. It was nice to have representatives of the organizations that the soup was going to on hand to explain who they worked with and how what we were doing would help them.”
