Barbecue benefits Every Child Matters campaign

WELLINGTON – October 22, 2021 – Wellington Co-op patrons enjoyed several dozen barbecued hamburgers and hotdogs Friday at noon for Co-op Day, which was part of Co-op and Small Business Week. In exchange, they offered monetary donations totaling $338 that will be donated to the “Every Child Matters” campaign, a movement to honour residential school survivors across the country, their families and their communities.
