Stettler and District FCSS hosts BBQ fundraiser for Crisis Aid

Crisis Aid program fundraiser raised awareness about the importance of donation.

It was the perfect weather for a barbecue fundraiser on Friday, June 24 as Stettler and District Family Community Support Services (FCSS) hosted one for their Crisis Aid program.

The Crisis Aid program is a “one-time” emergency assistance for any community member that is having financial difficulties and is unable to fill required prescriptions, attend a specialist appointment or medical testing, need temporary assistance with utilities, or need gas money to go to work out of town.

“All funding from the barbecue fundraiser went to the Crisis Aid program,” said Arlene Uhrich, part of the Crisis Aid program at FCSS. “We have so far assisted 24 community members, giving them $16,856 and change to date. This has included many of the known help we provide, but we have also been able to help with lodging for people in need due to unexpected situations.”

The Crisis Aid program, according to Uhrich, is funded by donations received and active fundraising.

“We appreciate all the donations we have received so far and continue to receive from community members as this allows us to help individuals when the need arises,” Uhrich added.
