Sara Wheelwright the S & E Trusted Online Directories Founder is committed to giving back to the community and has got involved with many non profits and initiatives over the last few years across Saskatchewan. See a previous article about Trusted community support here.
Whether it be sponsorship, donations, contests or attending events Trusted believes in helping out.
The latest initiative is one very close to Sara's heart, as she has been involved with a similar project with Habitat for Humanity Regina for the last 2 years, as one of the 100 in 2011, then 200 in 2012 women who stepped up to raise $300,000 over less than 200days and build 3 Habitat for Humanity houses in Regina.
