Our Commitment to Our Community — from schools to seniors’ residences — we love to be involved with our community.
Great Finds has a strong commitment to the community. Our main support goes to the Children’s Wish Fnd., The Alzheimer Society MB, The Breast Cancer Research Fnd. and Cancer Care MB. We participate in fundraising events and donate gift packages throughout the year.
We thoroughly enjoy our visits to seniors’ residences in and around Winnipeg. For many residents, our visit provides them with a rare opportunity to shop on their own and have a sense of independence. To add to the fun we often ask for a few models from the audience who then take centre stage. We help the schools in our area raise funds by donating gift certificates for their silent auctions and providing, on loan, our Treasures as props for their fashion shows.
Having An Event?
Great Finds’ staff are happy to attend teas, bazaars, conventions, fundraisers and other events hosted by people in Winnipeg and surrounding communities. We may be able to: donate a gift package and gift certificates for your silent auction or as a door prize; set up a retail table at your convention or fundraiser; demonstrate scarf tying at your next group meeting; or have a fashion show at your next social gathering.
Give us a call at 204-253-1338 or send us a message on our Contact page. We’ll do our best to respond within 24 hours. If you know of an event where people need little Treasures in their lives, let us know and we’ll see if we can be part of the excitement.
