CBC’s Saskatoon Morning Consolation & Pleasure vacation present raises cash for meals financial institution
The CBC Saskatoon Morning radio team moved from the studio to a downtown cafe on Thursday for its annual Comfort & Joy show.
The audience came to the Citizen Cafe and Bakery or tuned in to the special Saskatoon Morning show hosted by Jennifer Quesnel.
The show was part of CBC Saskatchewan’s 19th annual Comfort & Joy campaign to raise money for local food banks. People are invited to donate in support of the Saskatoon Food Bank.
So far, the provincial campaign has raised $ 16,685, which is $ 33,370 thanks to a promise from Nutrien to double donations.

The show also examined the friendliness that exists in hospitals, especially the palliative care unit.
