Thunderbird House on Main Street

Artist Jackie Traverse is organizing 'Got Art?’, an art auction fundraiser for Got Bannock, a registered non-profit.  Traverse will donate two original pieces.  Others featured include Patrick Ross, Arlea Ashcroft, Victor Tssessaze, and Ernie Cobiness, son of late Eddie Cobiness, one of the Native Group of Seven.

When I went homeless I felt forgotten by society. For me, that is the worst feeling in the world and I want to do everything I can to make the people on the street feel that they are not forgotten and I care that they are out there.  I am going to do everything I can to advocate for them and help bring change for them. Althea Guiboche

In that spirit of philanthropy, Althea Guiboche said once her food truck gets off the ground, for every customer who buys a meal for themselves she will donate one meal to a person in need.  Donations can be made to Got Bannock Inc. at Median Credit Union.
