Wrapping Up The L. P. Ings Scholarship Month

Thank You Volunteers, Donors & Sponsors!

VIRN would like to thank all our volunteers, donors, and sponsors who helped with this year’s L. P. Ings Scholarship Campaign during the month of June. We had a very successful dinner held at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Winnipeg, where the dinner guests got to hear from previous scholarship recipients.

The dinner kicked off our coin bank drive. The distinct yellow labels used on our coin banks were seen beside each cash register at MLCC locations throughout the province. VIRN is grateful to all our volunteers who dropped off, picked up the coin banks, and counted the money collected.

Your Spare Change Makes A Big Difference

Over $3,000.00 was raised and will be added to the principle of the L. P. Ings Scholarship fund being managed for us by the Winnipeg Foundation. This will ensure that more people in Manitoba who are vision impaired will receive funds needed for their education so that they can obtain the skills needed to become employed. Successful applicants will be able to offset the cost of tuition, books, or adaptive equipment on their journey to success.

Our coin banks may appear at selected businesses throughout the year.
