Faces of Gateway – Gala Fundraiser

May 26, 2019

Thank you to everyone that supported our annual fundraiser – Faces of Gateway! The evening included a Silent Auction with great auction options such as an Instant Pot, Goldeyes tickets, an Epicure assortment basket, a massage-pampering package, a Mexican food/snack package, just to name a few. The meal, prepared and served by George K Catering, did not disappoint. Thank you to Chris Sumner who was our MC for the evening. This year the Gala focused on the Operations sector of Gateway. A video, prepared by Patrick Simoens, gave everyone a glimpse into the daily life of both employees and participants who work in the Operations Division. Loni Derksen, Director of Operations, along with two participants, spoke at the Gala. All who attended were moved by the passion and dedication to Gateway that was shared that evening.The generosity and support of all of our community partnerships, families, friends and the many relationships we have with the business community is a blessing to us. Thank you for being a part of our organization.

Gateway Resources purchases Clay Owl

March 7, 2019

Gateway Resources is expanding our services to offer a Social Enterprise Opportunity for adults living with an intellectual disability in our community.  This opportunity will allow individuals we work with to gain further job skills and assist them in their training. 

Through Gateway Resources Day Program, we have been providing a variety of work and skill development opportunities; many people have been receiving on the job training which decreases barriers for people who live with disabilities in the community.  Gainful and meaningful employment can be anything from a couple of hours a day, one morning a week or anything else we can think of.

Expanding our services enables us to provide our supported individuals with additional opportunities to be part of the larger community.   This is an amazing opportunity for Gateway Resources to continue to offer additional services to the individuals we support.

Gateway Resources and Corrie Kehler from Clay Owl would like to announce that she is selling her business to Gateway Resources as of April 1st , 2019.  We are looking forward to a smooth transition and are excited to see the value Clay Owl has brought to the community continue.

Clay Owl is well known in the community and surrounding area.  In the span of 6+ years they have had customers from Winkler and surrounding communities and as far as Emerson, Crystal City and Winnipeg.  They  have programs that run consistently with groups from Emerson Rec. Centre, Morden Rec. Centre, Northland Childcare Centre, Winkler Community Choices, Bella’s Castle, Carman & Morden YFC etc.  They also have a large client base that returns regularly to paint with family and friends.  Many have made it a tradition to paint Christmas ornaments, some for the entire 6 years we’ve been open.  In addition to this they continue to regularly have people painting for the first time.  We’ve also added events such as “Paint Me a Story” or “Paint Me a Movie” which have been well loved in the community.

The hours for Clay Owl hours will remain the same at this time and we are encouraging people to use any gift cards they have as soon as possible, but will be accepted until the end of June.

If you have any questions  please don’t hesitate to ask.
