Squamish charity, Cutting Barriers is running a campaign to raise $10,000 for fellow charity Squamish Helping Hands, by Dec. 31st.
To date, $6,500 has been raised and recently Dave Ransier and Grant Gillies, of Target Homes, stepped up to match funds donated before the Dec. 31 deadline, up to the $10K mark.
Squamish Helping Hands provides food and shelter for people in the Sea to Sky Corridor.
The non-profit charity, which began in 2006, serves 65 to 120 hot meals for over 100 people each day. They have also provided 12,660 brown bag school lunches and have been home for the night for 3,000 shelter stays.
Cutting Barriers Employment and Training works to help local people become gainfully employed through training opportunities offered through community partnerships.
