Charity Checkstop to raise cash for victim support
A charity checkstop in Blackfalds on Saturday will raise money for the nonprofit Blackfalds and District Victim Support Society.
The event, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Hwy 2A in Blackfalds, will also help raise awareness about the society, which helps victims and witnesses of violent crimes, abuse and tragedy in communities surrounding Red Deer, including Red Deer County, Lacombe County, Blackfalds, Clive, Tees, Springbrook, Haynes, Joffre and Gull Lake village.
The society works with the local RCMP.
Funding helps train victim advocates, provide emergency services to those who need immediate support, and develop strategies for the society.
