ONE SURE THING

One church is taking their weekly coffee house and turning it into a fundraiser for people living with HIV/AIDS in Winnipeg. 

The House of Hesed, a transitional home for persons living with HIV/AIDS in Winnipeg, relies on the support of donors, churches, and grants from various Canadian charities to keep its doors open.

That's why they were so pleased when Gordon King Memorial United Church (GKMUC) told them that Thursday's coffee house, an event run weekly, would be raising money for the home.

Wang Dang Doodle is an open mic event at Gordie's Cofee House, part of GKMUC. Admission is just $5 and all proceeds are going to House of Hesed, which spokesperson Julia Zentner says they are very thankful for.

"This support is so invaluable," Zentner said. "We appreciate every bit of support because the reality is we don't get government funding."

The Christian home strives to help those living with HIV/AIDS get back on their feet. Zentner says that many residents were homeless before finding this place.

"We love them where they are and give them what they need," Zentner explains, saying that they are being the hands and feet of Jesus to a vulnerable population.

Wang Dang Doodle runs from 7:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 21 at Gordon King Memorial United Church. Admission is $5.
