Community Spotlight: Saying Goodbye to Loaves and Fishes
At the Red Deer Kinsmen Club, one of our consistent goals is to showcase the amazing work of those in our own community. With a growing rate of assistance that is needed to help those affected by hunger, abuse, addiction and homelessness, it’s important that we have organizations that make these issues a priority. Loaves and Fishes was one of those organizations that stepped up and continued to change the lives of so many people over the years. From delivering nourishing food to those who need it most to providing safety from oppression and discrimination, Loaves and Fishes truly demonstrated what it meant to help others. After 20 years of service Loaves and Fishes Benevolent Society is closing its doors and we want to just say thank you for everything that they have done for the community.Read More
