Altona and Area Empty Stocking Fund
Last year, the Altona and Area Empty Stocking Fund provided Christmas hampers for 165 families and gifts for more than 400 children. Red River Mutual staff members raised $3,972 towards the Empty Stocking Fund. Red River matched these funds for a total of $7,944. Staff members raised the funds by organizing a Walk-N-Roll-A-Thon on June 11, 2009.
The event included a choice of three different routes to walk, run, rollerblade or cycle. Participants raised funds through seeking pledges and the day ended with a BBQ in the park.
