2020 Grant Recipient

The recipient for our 2020 Change in the Making 20k service grant was Snowflake Place for Children and Youth. Snowflake Place is Manitoba’s only Children’s Advocacy Centre that offers a central community model for victims of child abuse. They are designed to facilitate multi-system collaboration and foster best practices in child abuse investigations to ensure that victims receive sensitive and immediate support in a setting that puts their needs first.


“At Snowflake Place we are so grateful for having been the recipient of Relish’s Community Grant! It was a game-changer. Not only is the team at Relish extraordinarily talented, they really took the time to learn about our work, and they care. They have gone above and beyond, and their work has helped us lay the foundation for a whole new beginning.
Thank you, Relish!”

Why are we doing this?


Relish has had a longstanding desire to give back to our local community; it’s what led us
to become a B Corporation and is the driving force behind everything we do.

The idea for the Change in the Making community grant was born out of this mind frame of giving back in hopes that we could contribute in a more meaningful way. It is our hope to build relationships and create opportunities, both internally and externally.
