The Heart and Stroke Foundation is warning Winnipeggers to be wary of canvassers claiming to be collecting funds for the foundation.
Canvassers wear a volunteer button bearing the HSF logo and the current year. Canvassers also have Heart and Stroke receipt books with receipt numbers and the foundation’s charitable registration number.
Legitimate door-to-door collection will begin in February.
Donors should ensure their cheques are made payable to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Donations can also be made over the phone or mailed to 6 Donald Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3L 0K6.
