The 16th annual Vickar Automotive Group’s Walk with L’Arche gathering at Oxford Heights Community Club on Sunday May 3rd has been CANCELLED due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are however proceeding with the PLEDGE DRIVE to raise funds for L’Arche Winnipeg, and the pledge drive is extended to the end of May. To collect pledges from the safety of your own home:
– Phone or email family and friends and invite them to sponsor you with a credit card donation to L’Arche through CanadaHelps.org– who will immediately issue you an official income tax receipt (in the “Message for L’Arche Winnipeg” section, please indicate “Walk” and the name of the person you are sponsoring).
– Cheques (payable to: L’Arche Winnipeg) can be mailed to: L’Arche Winnipeg, 118 Regent Ave. East, Winnipeg MB R2C 0C1
– Pledge forms with cash and/or cheques can be put in a sealed envelope and deposited through the mail slot at the front of the L’Arche Winnipeg office building.
Pledge collectors are still eligible for Walk prizes and gift cards. Prize winners will be selected in June, and contacted by L’Arche Winnipeg to arrange for pickup or delivery. Gift card offers will be mailed out. Commemorative Walk T-shirts can still be requested (conditions apply) with the deadline to request a T-shirt extended to April 24, 2020.
If permitted by Manitoba Health and Provincial regulations, we invite you to individually go on a leisurely “walk for L’Arche” in your own neighbourhood on a day of your choice. Take photos and show us the creative ways by which you are showing your support for L’Arche. Email your photos (and any questions about the walk) to: firstname.lastname@example.org – and we will print a selection of photos in the June edition of our Gratitude newsletter.
