The South Okanagan Women in Need Society (SOWINS) recently received a generous gift from RONA Penticton.
The non-profit society which helps women and children experiencing or fleeing abuse, and as part of the Lowe’s Canada Heroes campaign, received a cheque for $13,333 from the RONA Penticton.
According to a release from the society, the store ran a fundraising campaign throughout the month of September and it is also supporting the society’s Share the Spirit of Christmas campaign.
“RONA Penticton is sponsoring hampers with gifts and food for families experiencing or at risk of abuse in our community,” states the release.
The Share the Spirit campaign runs until the end of December and residents can support it by making a donation, dropping off a new gift for a child or mother, or by sponsoring a hamper for a family in need.
