Paws & Claws Animal Rescue Foundation

Paws & Claws is a local Animal Rescue Foundation that has been serving Central Alberta for many years. We recently partnered up with them, and have had the pleasure of sponsoring 3 of their larger rescue missions this year. We were able to provide transportation for their dedicated team, and as a result of these 3 missions alone, over 101 animals were rescued! Shout out to the incredible team at Paws & Claws. It is the kind souls like you guys that make our community so great. Thank you for doing what you do, and thank you for allowing us to play a small part in that!

Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre

Southside has been a long time supporter of the Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre here in Red Deer. When we heard the struggles our friends were facing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we knew we had to help. Due to all the enhanced health & safety measures in place, Aspire was facing the difficult task of renovating their building to accommodate all of the children in their program. They had to build two additional classrooms to maintain proper social distancing as well as provide each individual child with their very own set of supplies to minimize any transmission risk. These were not small changes and therefore required a large financial commitment. We hosted a bottle drive right here at SSRD, and thanks to the incredible members of our community we were able to raise OVER $1200 to help Aspire offset these additional costs. We couldn't be more proud of the fine folks here in Red Deer. Thank you!

Aspire Children's Raffle

We were very excited to partner with Aspire once again this year for their annual Children's Raffle. We were able to donate the grand prize, a 2021 Jeep Compass North. A huge thank you to everyone that bough tickets and donated to this incredible organization. We would also like to congratulate all of the lucky winners of this year's raffle!

The Mustard Seed

Meet Jamie and Tetianna, two local nursing students here in Red Deer. These incredible young women organized a backpack drive in support of the Mustard Seed. They were filling backpacks with basic necessities to hand out to new arrivals at the Mustard Seed. This was a cause we were very happy to get behind. We collected backpacks and personal items on their behalf and were able to donate to help them along. Thank you Jamie & Tetianna for supporting our community!

Broom Tree Foundation

Our team had the pleasure of meeting with the amazing team of ladies that run the Broom Tree Foundation in Lacombe. Not only were they kind enough to feed us a delicious lunch from their new café, but they also shared their mission with us. Their organization works to promote and maintain an enriched environment focused solely on women in need of support & compassion. When we heard they were expanding their operations and were looking for office furniture, we were happy to load up our trailer and donate the furniture we no longer needed. If you are ever in Lacombe, you definitely need to visit their new café! Thank you so much for doing what you do.
