The remaining Moose Jaw Downtown Pride Funds will help victims of the March 12 High Street fire.
At Monday’s executive committee meeting, executive voted in favour of transferring the $30,046.10 from the fund to the Salvation Army to provide assistance to those people affected by the fire on the historic Jubilee block on the zero block of High Street West. The fire displaced 20 people, many of whom lost everything.
The fund was originally meant to collect donations to rebuild the buildings destroyed in the 2004 New Year’s Day fire at the corner of River Street and Main Street. The funds were deemed a municipal project.
