Co-op anniversary becomes Kenow fundraiser

With plans to celebrate Pincher Creek Co-op’s 95th anniversary in the works prior to the Kenow fire, general manager Jim Peace saw an opportunity for the business to do good for its community.

A Taste of Pincher Creek, a first-time event hosted Saturday by the Co-op, became a fundraiser along with a celebration of the Co-op’s anniversary.

Money raised will be passed to Angels Within Us, which is managing donations for affected ranchers, homeowners and lessees in the Twin Butte area. The amount is not yet confirmed.

Days earlier, through a buy-three-get-the-fourth-free deal on barbed wire offered to fire victims, Co-op topped up a Nature Conservancy of Canada purchase by $10,000 of wire.

Co-op also donated dog food to shelters housing evacuated pets and has taken a “What do you need and where can we take it?” attitude in providing assistance.

Some donations have also been made directly to Co-op accounts of wildfire victims.
