Hunger in Moose Jaw’s I Bought Lunch campaign wraps up on Saturday.
Carol Acton, Hunger in Moose Jaw executive director, said the program has raised about $30,000 and staff are hopeful to reach their goal of $50,000. The only location left to donate to the campaign is at Hunger in Moose Jaw, 269 Stadacona St. W.
“We still have quite a bit to come in that we sort of know is coming,” said Acton. “(People) can still come in and see us, but there’s not very much time because we’ll be full staffed (today), but on Friday we won’t be. We’ll just be here in the morning and then nobody will be back until the 28th of December. But it doesn’t matter if they’re late.”
The money raised from the program goes toward making lunches for hungry children in Moose Jaw elementary schools. The cost to make a lunch is $1 per lunch and it would include a sandwich, a piece of fruit and a vegetable.
