A pair of local organizations were the beneficiaries of the Morden and Winkler Police Departments combined bike auction earlier this month. All bikes auctioned off during this event were bikes that were found and not claimed or donated for the event.

"It feels amazing," said The Bunker's Eldon Shore. "The directors at the Bunker really love what we do and we feel a huge need for the community. It's really appreciated when we can see the community and people coming in see the same need and give to it. So, we are very appreciative."

Winkler Police Chief Rick Hiebert stated over the years they've generally given this money back to groups who are involved directly with youth and children in the area and the Bunker is a prime example of that.

Meanwhile, the Morden Police Service gave their proceeds, $1,300, to Katie Cares.

"This is an opportunity to give back and looking around, what an amazing facility this is," said Morden Police Chief Brad Neduzak, when asked why they wanted to give to Katie's Cottage. "With Kaitlyn's vision and the Reimer's efforts to continue this and offer such an amazing place to people. Maybe in a time of need when they have family or themselves who are in need of hospitalization. It's a place to just come to relax, kick back, or stay overnight."

Katie Care's Ruth Reimer stated it's always greatly appreciated to receive support from everyone in the community, and added this money will go toward the day to day operation of Katie's Cottage.
