Winkler Fire Department, Harvest Festival and Eden

Winkler’s Harvest Festival is all done and the parade has passed us all by but yet the effect of the day has not ended. Each year, the Winkler Fire Department selects a charity for which they collect donations. We see the fire trucks and we also see the fire fighters walking along, each with a boot in hand and people drop their donation into the boot.

This year all those donations; large and small, came to a total of $6,694.83. A wonderful and unexpected boost to the work of Eden Health Care Services in bringing hope, healing and community to people on a mental health journey..

The fire department made the presentation of the funds at Eden Foundation’s 17th Annual Head for the Hills cycling event held on Saturday September 7th.
