Two major charity events scheduled for Saturday had to be cancelled because of bitterly cold weather but both have been rescheduled for this Saturday (Dec. 14).

With temperatures as low as -39˚C early in the day and windchill making it feel like another 10 degrees colder, both the Sylvan Lake RCMP and Victim Services Charity Checkstop and the Red Deer Catholic School Division Stuff a Bus were cancelled, reported organizers.

Wayne Stade said Stuff a Bus will be held at Sobeys, Scott’s No Frills and Walmart from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It’s organized by Red Deer Catholic School Division, Ecole Mother Teresa School and Ecole Our Lady of the Rosary School.

The 13th annual Sylvan Lake RCMP and Victim Services Unit charity checkstop will happen Saturday (Dec. 14) between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on 47th Avenue between Ryders Square and Hewlett Park Landing, according to Victim Services program coordinator Jennifer Plotnikoff. Beneficiaries of the event include Sylvan Lake Victim Services, Eckville Santa’s Anonymous, Bentley Christian Fund, Sylvan Lake Christmas Bureau and Sylvan Lake Food Bank.
