On behalf of the Soupateria board of directors, our volunteer members, and our clients, we would like to express our sincere condolences to Marcel Gagne’s family and relatives. Marcel was
a very kind and generous soul. He will be sorely missed.
Thank you to Kevin Proteau of Locals Supporting Locals-your donation of $240 will go a long way! Locals Supporting Locals just released their 3rd Annual 2016 Locals Calendar and held an event at the Penticton Legion where they raised $240.00 for the Soupateria.
Rock’N it Local into to the New Year was about celebrating everything local in our South Okanagan from our local artists, to local businesses and our local farmers. This event was also about supporting our local Soupateria with all proceeds from the raffle going to the Penticton Soupateria.
With winter fast approaching, those living on the streets are battling the cold and the wind everyday. But as Cole Deakin reports, a Penticton man is making it his mission to make sure all of the homeless people in his community have something warm to wear when they are braving the element.Global Okanagan News story
The 1st Coyote Hills Guides enjoyed visiting the Penticton Soupateria on Wednesday. The Guides assembled “Blessing Bags” for those in need. The girls started collecting items and donations in September and were able to pack and donate 42 bags. Lauraine (team leader at the Soupateria) was amazing with the girls and kind enough to volunteer her time to meet with us and teach the girls about the Soupateria’s mission. The girls learned ALOT, it was a great night. Thank you!
As the cold weather has now hit, residents are encouraged to support the annual Cover With Kindness campaign presented by the Penticton Soupateria Society.
The Soupateria is in need of donations of new or gently-used blankets, sleeping bags, toques, scarves, gloves, mittens, winter coats, socks and long underwear. Items will be given to homeless and people in need.
The campaign will run until Dec. 14-15 when items will be distributed at the parish hall of St. Saviour’s Anglican Church between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. as an early Christmas gift.
Any leftover items will be donated to the “free store” at St. Saviour’s and given to the homeless and those in need during the winter months ahead.Penticton Herald article
