The Ktunaxa Nation and Cranbrook Home Depot are celebrating another successful Orange Door Project fundraising drive.
From September 1 to October 9, every $2 donation at the Cranbrook Home Depot went to the Ktunaxa Nation’s Street Angel program through the Orange Door Project.
“The Orange Door Project is usually run in the late spring or early summer when the stores are the busiest,” said Racheal Nicholas, Urban Services Manager. “We had raised $20,000 last year so were hoping to come close to that amount this year. Incredibly, we managed to top last year’s amount by over $13,000 which really speaks to the generosity and kindness of the people in the Cranbrook area.”
“The Cranbrook Home Depot has been an amazing supporter of Street Angel for three years now but sadly, this is the last year that Street Angel can receive funding through the Orange Door Project,” continued Nicholas. “I am certain that the many other community agencies who we work closely with will be able to benefit from this amazing program. Tim Strauss and his staff at the Cranbrook Home Depot should be proud of the contributions they have made to the vulnerable population in Cranbrook, as should all people who reside in Cranbrook.”
Since 2010, The Ktunaxa Nation’s Operation Street Angel has provided services to homeless and vulnerable populations in the Cranbrook area including hot nutritious meals, nurse practitioner and mental health services, advocacy, employment and justice services. Street Angel is located at #46 17th avenue South in Cranbrook.
