Bissell Centre has been selected, along with Hope Mission, as the beneficiaries for the next set of Edmonton Oilers 50/50 raffles from December 17 to 21, 2022.
This is an incredible opportunity from the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation to raise funds and awareness about our programs and services.
About the Community Space
Funds received through this 50/50 will go towards the Bissell Centre Community Space, which provides both long and short-term supports seven days a week for those experiencing houselessness.
Basic needs supports:
- laundry services
- clothing through our community closet
- medical services (nurse on-site daily and doctor on-site once a week)
- mental health
- cultural supports
- financial empowerment
Last month, the Community Space saw 1,629 individuals access its services 8,243 times. In that same time period, 7722 pounds of clothing items were distributed to community members.
