I am writing today to see if you would be interested in sponsoring me for a fundraiser? It is a 2 Km “Covid friendly” walk on Feb 21st to the support the shelter program for Mustard Seed. A Better World as been supporting the efforts of the Red Deer Mustard Seed to provide shelter, clothing and food for those without adequate shelter.
The Mustard Seed provides warm meals, clothing, necessities, overnight shelter, counseling, and employment assistance.
If this cause touches your heart as it has mine and you would like to participate in sponsoring me, please join me for a walk and or donate through A Better World.
Thank-you for taking the time to consider a donation. I can’t imagine what it must be like to be homeless and trying to find any available help in our temperatures lately! .
February 21, Sunday at 2 PM for 2 KM walk. Meet at the entrance to Cranna Lake (Corner of Woodland Drive and Cedar Cres.) After the walk join us for hot chocolate at the ABW parking lot across form the Lacombe Post Office.
The Mustard Seed is a safe, supportive haven for individuals experiencing poverty and homelessness. They offer services and supports to those in need with the goal of helping them make positive, lasting change in their lives. They come alongside our community, offering a hand-up rather than simply a hand-out, and journey with them as they move towards a life of wellness and independence.

Basic Necessities: The Mustard Seed meets the immediate needs of those experiencing homelessness and poverty by providing our community with warm meals, clothing, and hygiene products.
Meals: The Mustard Seed School Lunch Program ensures youth experiencing poverty receive healthy nutritious lunches during the school year. The program makes and delivers approximately 350 meals to low-income students, each day.
