Typhoon Haiyan Donations

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Saskatchewan people are a generous lot evidenced by the amount of money raised for victims of Typhoon Haiyan that cut a swath through the island nation of Philippines.

The Regina Archdiocese raised a little over $260,000.00 and the Saskatchewan Knights of Columbus (K of C) Charitable Foundation raised a little over $250,000.00. That’s over $600,000.00 between the two. There’s a separate story elsewhere in the news section of this site but I wanted to comment first about Saskatchewan people’s generosity, how that money was handled and what it shows about this province’s demographic make up.
