Handi-Van Pledge Show

The Pas Handi-Van's annual pledge show is coming this Thursday and Friday.


The event runs to support the non-profit organization's efforts to provide transportation services to individuals with mobility issues.


The services are offered to those in The Pas, OCN, and RM of Kelsey for a small user fee.


However, the costs associated with maintaining and operating the vehicle can be demanding.


Val Miron explains:


"Annually, our budget runs in the mid $80,000 range.  So when we did up our budget this year, that's basically what we're looking at again.  We really try to keep our cost at the essentials, but there's nothing we can reduce costs on anymore. 


We just operate, you still have to pay wages, you still need fuel, you still need Hydro, et cetera.


So those are all the costs that we do incur."


For anyone interested in donating, the pledge show runs this Thursday and Friday from 8:30 to 10:30 am; pledges will be accepted at the CJAR offices during the event.
