Spark in the News

December 14, 2011

Spark, a service of CCEDNet, was recently profiled in two widely-circulated news sources in Winnipeg. 

On Manitoba, the alumni magazine of the University of Manitoba, and the Winnipeg Free Press both featured articles on Spark’s work in connecting non-profit organizations in Winnipeg with volunteers who have specialized skills. 

The On Manitoba article includes a profile on Spark’s program coordinator Geoff Ripat, who is a graduate of the U of M. In the Winnipeg Free Press, Matt Prepost highlights a match that Spark made between a new social enterprise cafe and an interior designer.
