Book sale supports Sprague housing project


 

   On September 23 to 25, the East Borderland and Community Housing Committee hosted a used book sale at the Clearspring Mall in Steinbach to help raise money for a proposed senior’s housing project to be built Sprague.

   The three day event raised $4,000 that was added to the $300,000 in funds already collected towards the construction of a new housing complex in the community.

   “We were pleased,” added Sian Barrow, a member of the fundraising committee. “We had a lot of pretty good books donated from such a small population.”

   The East Borderland Community Housing project is committed to raise $2.2 million towards the construction of a dozen personal care beds, 8 supportive units and 15 elderly person’s housing units. The units will be added to the existing East Borderland Community Primary Health Center located in Sprague along Highway 12.
