Farm Credit Canada is giving 13 charitable and non-profit organizations in Regina $150,000 through the FCC Spirit Fund.

Carla Warnyca, the manager of community investment with FCC, said with over a thousand employees living in Regina, they need to give back.

“There is a lot of great work being done here. There is a ton of remarkable community groups in the City, and the FCC Regina Spirit Fund is just a way we help support their efforts to make Regina an even better place to live.”

She added that they are grateful to be a part of projects that will make the City of Regina a better place to live.
