FASD Awareness Day 2022
This year for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Awareness Day, WICS staff and customers collaborated with the Sherwood Park Crusaders to promote awareness around FASD at their game on Friday, September 9th, 2022. Both adults and kids attending the Crusader's game were able to enter draws to win prizes by answering questions about FASD and playing on WICS' homemade Plinko Board. WICS promoted awareness and educated the public about how alcohol affects the brain of fetuses and the impact that FASD has on the individuals living with it. Shantel (CPC Member)
EARTH DAY - April 22, 2022
Winder Inclusive Communities Service's community spirit was twelve strong at the Jackie Parker Recreation Area in Southeast Edmonton on Earth Day. Eager, enthusiastic, and armed with trash bags and grabbers, several of WICS Stakeholders (customers and employees) mingled with a variety of dogs and their humans in the off-leash area scouring for trash to make the area clean and enjoyable for all. We removed the usual litter of cigarette butts, cans, bottles, and paper along with some unusual items like cotton ear swabs! Laughter and merriment made the adventure pleasant for all and, most importantly, we contributed to honouring our environment by taking action!
