Sooke Family Resources Society finalist in video competition

Group shortlisted in the B.C. Hydro Community Champions competition to win $10,000

The Sooke Family Resources Society has launched a new initiative, this time with a video to promote its thrift shop, as well as its role in the community.

And its getting a favourable response: the three-minute video has been shortlisted in the B.C. Hydro Community Champions competition to win $10,000.

The video focuses on SFRS new Thrift Shop, which collects, distributes and sells used clothing, small appliances and household items.

Volunteers clean and repair donations to generate more revenue and reduce waste, creating another avenue in giving back to the community, with 100 per cent of the shop’s profits going towards supporting children and families.

In addition, SFRS created volunteer placements in partnership with Edward Milne Community School, allowing students to receive skills training and on the job work training.

 

Those who want to view and vote for the video can go to champions.bchydro.com/entries/view/sfrs.
