“Without the generous contributions from all sectors, we simply would not be able to provide emergency assistance after a di­saster, violence prevention training for kids or the array of other support programs we offer,” said Luc Mullinder, Senior Manager of Corporate Partnerships and Philanthropy for the province.
Several initiatives led by the Saskatchewan philanthropy team successfully raised the funds needed to ensure the Red Cross is able to serve the needs of people in this province. “All of the funds raised in Saskatchewan stay in Saskatchewan,” Mullinder explained.
Highlights include:
  • The 2019 Red Gala organizing committee, led by Murad Al-Katib of AGT Foods and Ingre­dients, created an evening of glamour that raised $425,000 for Violence Prevention and Emergency Management programs in the province.
  • The 2019 Campaign for Kids Raffle and Great Saskatchewan Red Cross Lottery raised more than $220,000 combined.
  • The 2019 Walmart Canada campaign raised just over $127,000, an increase of more than $10,000 from the previous year.
