Being a United Way Winnipeg Agency Partner, we have access to wonderful events such as United Way Day of Caring. This is a wonderful program in which local groups can arrange through United Way Winnipeg to volunteer at an agency partner just like Main Street Project.
This week we were fortunate enough to host an amazing group of volunteers from Great-West Life, who generously gave their time to help organize our clothing room. Thanks so much! We really appreciate it a lot!

Thanksgiving weekend is just over a week away and we could really use your help.
We will be making Thanksgiving meals to serve over 200 of our amazing community members in our emergency shelter, detox, and in our transitional housing areas. As a charity, we rely on the generous support of the local community to make this happen.
We would really appreciate donations of food and related supplies. Precooked meals are especially helpful, but really anything would be great.
If you think you can help, please contact Cindy at 204-982-8257 or firstname.lastname@example.org – anything
