On July 21st, WSA purchased a new Dodge Caravan thanks to a grant provided by the Edmonton Community Foundation.

The purchase of this new vehicle that is dependable, fuel efficient and accommodates mobility issues allows the individuals we support to continue to access their communities in a meaningful way, and enables them to travel outside of the City of Edmonton to experience opportunities that will enrich their lives.

Through the summer, individuals in our residential services program had the opportunity to vacation at Camp L.G. Barnes, situated on the southwestern shores of Gull Lake near Bentley, Alberta. L.G. Barnes is a year-round lakeside facility that provides visitors with a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities.

Participants of our Day Services program have also been able to experience fun new opportunities like remote controlled air flying at Bremner Flying Field and Halloween laser tag since the purchase of the van, all thanks to the grant provided by the Edmonton Community Foundation.

The Edmonton Community Foundation has been supporting Winnifred Stewart Association for nearly 20 years with the first grant awarded in 1999. Today, The Edmonton Community Foundation has provided WSA with nearly $90,000 in support through various grants. We are proud to call the Edmonton Community Foundation our partner!
