Volunteers unpacked between an estimated 100 to 150 full-sized boxes of new clothing donated to Lighthouse Mission by Project Echo Friday morning. “We outfit around 10 to 20 people daily with our current clothing program — we hope to be able to double that,” said Reverend Sean Goulet, executive director of Lighthouse Mission. The clothing donated on Friday morning consisted of warm clothing, jackets, and boots. Goulet said that the mission wants to provide new clothing to their guests, and give them dignity through Winnipeg’s coldest months. “Project Echo asked what the need was, and they delivered,” said Rev. Goulet. The mission sees over 200 people daily, and offers addiction treatment, transitional housing, non-perishable food items, food hampers, warm clothing, mentoring, and daily meals. The mission has also joined with Project Echo to provide job skills training — some of the guests helped in the process of shipping and receiving the donation. “I am excited about this partnership with Project Echo and Lighthouse Mission,” said Jeff Fisher, president of Elite Performance in a press release. “We know the importance of being involved in our community and wanted to provide Winnipeggers with the opportunity to stay warm and healthy this winter.” For more on this article Click Here.
