Over the past 30 years, The Garibaldi Lodge, along with its sisters at La Lupa di Roma, have been funding and promoting Italian culture and language throughout Manitoba. The organization was originally established in the early 1900’s to help Italian immigrants settle into their new lives after reaching North American shores. With this job long since completed, the focus has changed from helping Italians, to helping the greater community; medical research, hospitals, education, inner-city poverty, food banks, and immigrants, are just some of the areas of support the organization has made a difference in.
