The Stand Up for Oscars Group is running a fundraiser called “Cot You Caring” for The Oscars Place Homeless Shelter. Money raised will go towards buying cots for the Shelter. The cots the shelter is in need of are medical cots that are $495 each. So far the group has been able to purchase 10 cots with a donation of $5000 and they are still in need of donations from the community to reach their goal of 25 cots.
Having cots will have many benefits such as keeping the heating costs lower, making it easier for people with joint issues to get in and out of bed, and to keep people off the floor. The Group is also planning on having a chase the ace to help raise money for the cots. If you would like to make a donation call Olivia McCorriston at 204-761-9244.
