Throughout 2020, Messinger Meats will donate $2 from every lunch purchased on Thursdays to a different charity each month.
On Friday, the 12 participating charities being supported through Messinger Meats’ lunch program were revealed.
Those charities are Veantage Community Services, Turning Point, Central Alberta Refugee Effort, Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre, Central Alberta Pregnancy Care Centre, Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre, Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation, The Lending Cupboard, Safe Harbour Society, ASPIRE Special Needs Resource Centre, The Mustard Seed and Potters Hands.
After the charities were revealed, a card was picked out of a jar to determine which organization will receive support in January.
Potters Hands was selected as the first charity. At the end of each month, another organization will be randomly selected as the next recipient.
