Two of Swift Current’s biggest non-profit organizations have come together for the good cause of mental health support.

Swift Current Community Youth Center (The Center) is well underway in developing mental health counselling offices. Situated next door to the existing facilities, the Kinettes have made a generous donation to help with that work. 

The Center’s Executive Director Nathan Wiebe gratefully accepted the cheque for $1500.

“With our new counselling centre, we’re going to be putting it towards building supplies and furniture to get this up and running,” said Wiebe. “We’re well on our way, and hopefully opening sometime in October. This is such a huge help to us as we go through that process.”

The Kinette club has had a lasting relationship with The Center and is very public with their commitment to the youth in this city. They have made multiple donations over the years while ensuring to commend the staff’s hard work.

Tracy Prang, vice president of the Swift Current Kinettes was one of the club members who made the in-person donation.

“We’ve worked on and off with The Center for around 4 years,” said Prang. “Nathan and his staff do such amazing work, we’re just happy to be a part of it.”
