2015 is almost over and the holidays are in full force. Although many of us have plans to spending this time with our friends and family over a delicious Christmas feast, the end of December is stressful for many people. Emotions run high, and coupled by the fact that our economy isn’t in the best position, we need to spread awareness about the various services available to the public. That’s why we’re proud to support the Family Services of Central Alberta (also known as F.S.C.A) with their endeavours. As a social group that is always trying to improve Red Deer, we understand how important they are to the community; we’re also proud that we get to work with an organization that shares our values.
Since incorporating in 1971, they’ve worked tirelessly to provide care to the community through their numerous programs that help people from all walks of life. From counselling to prenatal services, the F.S.C.A assists people when they need help the most while also teaching them valuable skills and changing lives in the process. In 2011, we were lucky to team up with them to create the Kinsmen Family Place, located in Parkland Mall. We contributed over $100,000 to this location and we’re proud that so many people can access affordable care. (If you or someone you know could benefit from a similar partnership, we would love to speak with you. Please visit our Apply for Funding page and fill out the appropriate sections.)

Also, make sure you’re following our Facebook and Twitter pages and to get more information regarding the Dream Home Lottery! The cut off date for buying tickets is December 31st at 5PM. Because of events like our Dream Home Lottery, we’re able to work with wonderful groups like the F.S.C.A. This lottery allows us to help those in need while also giving people the opportunity to win a variety of prizes. If you would like to be a part of something spectacular, we encourage you to get your tickets today! Happy Holidays from the Kinsmen!
