Co-op celebrates Moar contest winners

By Dan Yates

Sandy Moar has come full circle.

She was left stranded with a dead car battery on a cold January night before an employee helped her outside the Red River Co-op Food Store on Main Street in Winnipeg, Man. Now she’s returned to that store to claim the My Co-op Story contest’s $5,000 story prize.

“I don’t even know what to say,” Moar said. “I’m filling up my freezer and filling up my car.”

With over 37,000 votes cast for the six best stories, Moar squeaked out a win in the tight race. Dawn Martens-Koop of Saskatoon, Sask., won the $5,000 prize in a random draw of voters.

Moar said this will help her family – her husband and two children – with her mother’s upcoming  birthday and Christmas celebrations. She also plans to share her good fortune and pay it forward.
