Long-time Supporters Brian & Kathy Turnquist give to the Up Capital Campaign

The Turnquist’s have been generous supporters of the Lighthouse for many years and this year have designated their gift of $25,000 to go towards the Up Capital Campaign to renovate the suites in the Dube Lighthouse Tower and to expand the emergency shelters and programming space.

Brian and Kathy are also very giving of their time volunteering at the Lighthouse with St. Paul’s United for Coffee and Conversation on Tuesday nights. Their enthusiasm for the mission of the Lighthouse combined with their relationships with the clients make the Turnquists strong advocates for supportive housing for those in need in Saskatoon. Brian has also joined the Campaign leadership team to encourage others to lend their support to the Lighthouse.

Our reasons for assisting at The Lighthouse are quite simple.  We believe we have a responsibility to help our neighbors in Saskatoon to live with dignity.  The Lighthouse is ideally located in the downtown to serve their clients with safe housing and with a short-term shelter.  The expansion and renewal at The Lighthouse is an important project for Saskatoon and we are very pleased to be a part of it.                             

                                      – Brian Turnquist
