Over the 2019 holiday season, the Morris Group of Companies raised $5000 for the Oak Table, and Walt Morris personally matched dollar for dollar donating in total $10,000 to the Oak Table Organization. The Morris Group of Companies is proud to have collected over 100 cans of tuna and dozens of pairs of socks, back packs, underwear, razors and many more items that Winnipeg’s most vulnerable are in need of.
Oak Table has been lending a helping hand to Winnipeg’s most vulnerable from providing meals, a warm place to sleep, mental heath programs and has plans on expansions that will include 6 washrooms, 2 showers that will be available for people of all abilities as well laundry machines. There are currently 2 washrooms for guests but nowhere for people to clean up. These are basic Human Rights. This is just the start of what Oak Table does for their guests.
Walt and Cassandra Morris met with the executive director Glynis Quinn and got an even deeper look at what people in need face every day. Please watch this video –
