Spring will eventually come (it’s true) and our yards will dry out and when it does we at SSCOPE are preparing to expand our spring summer and fall property services work by 100% to allow us to create much needed additional employment. Take a look at our door hanger in pdf form with a special offer attached HERE.

We are receiving donations every day now as we get closer to our December 21 Christmas dinner and all day Christmas spirit event at SSCOPE, including great discounts to the public in Treasures Thrift Store.
Today’s donation brought with it a wonderful note from a customer that has been with SSCOPE for a few years now, that should gratify all staff, volunteers and our employee-members.
“I am enclosing a cheque for… to be donated to SSCOPE for the holiday season and to thank all of your staff for the diligent, hard work that your employees do. I am very grateful for this service that you provide and feel that you are a wonderful community organization to do business with. Please express, my thanks and happy holidays to all the staff. Thank you for your cooperation and assistance.”
We very much appreciate this great testimonial. Our staff hear many more daily. Thank you to all our valued Customers in 2012. We fully recognize that we are a Customer driven organization, even as a non profit.
SSCOPE employees on the job on the first day of SSCOPE's new 3 week construction related job on July 4th, seen here just a little drenched after some rains came to cool them down. Wescon Construction of Steinbach awarded SSCOPE the pre concrete work on a large dairy barn construction project just west of Winnipeg in the Rosser area. There is about three weeks of work in this project and it is epxected that this will lead to more construction related work for this company and others in the near future.
During the week of July 3-6 SSCOPE also supplied construction renovation labour over a four day period to our partner, Siloam Mission’s Madison Lodge project.
Meanwhile the Treasures Thrift Storeis accepting new donations daily, with a lot of new inventory in the music, clothing and furniture areas. The generous support of Winnipegers is allowing SSCOPE to currently seek partners who have possible retail locations to aid in the growth of the SSCOPE Treasures Thrift Stores in other parts of Winnipeg as well.
SSCOPE’s Treasures Mobile Food Unit, continues to be out daily testing various locations in Winnipeg, finding a home for its daily offerings. Meanwhile in the tradition of the Food Truck business everywhere the Food menu is being upgraded to draw passionate followers, and a distinctive name is being sought. Little Food Feats anyone? Bookings for the Mobile Unit can be made by contacting SSCOPE at 987-6302 or call us with your naming suggestions. SSCOPE continues to investigate and develop a full range of special catering and delivery services to create additional Food Services employment for its members.
SSCOPE’s Lawn Services division continues to add additional properties to it’s weekly cutting and trimming list as homeowners and building managers see the overall value and direct benefits to the communty of the SSCOPE service. Recently a number of Manitoba Housing properties were added, plus some private properties that need maintenance while owners are away on vacation.

1. Our May 28th event, which we moved indoors at the last minute to our new home at 1466 Arlington St., was successful with many strictly volunteer performers, great music and we don’t meant that lightly, and lots of bargain hunters all afternoon into the early evening. Watch for pictures and detailed list of all those who performed on the website shortly. Nearly $2,300 was raised for SSCOPE, even though our goal was just to create greater public awareness for the organization.
2. We are almost at full capacity for our Lawn Services Business with 62 customers, a record high for the organization, up over 10-14 over previous years. In addition we have two large Manitoba Housing commercial projects at their condos, just started in late May, which we thank them for, that will create at least 5 new job positions for our employee members. We currently average 8 new applications a month with some months as high as 15.
3. SSCOPE’s new office location, retail and customer service training centre, plus shop facilities will all be at 1466 Arlington St., as of June 27.
