Our Holiday Season Special Altruistic Project 2020
Our ADK Ontario Upsilon chapter is continuing with our Christmas season tradition of supporting families in need in the Waterloo Region. This year, due to COVID-19, the Women’s Crisis Services of the Waterloo Region is facing an even greater challenge posed by heightened rates of spousal/partner abuse and local shelters are working to meet these greater needs. The Region supports two shelters: Haven House in Cambridge and Anselma House in Kitchener.
Our ADK sisters contributed boxes of much needed toiletries, personal care items and baby care items. We added an envelope stuffed with $25 gift cards toward local retailers (grocery stores and Walmart). These cards will be distributed to the women so that they can independently purchase a gift for their own child/ren.
These are indeed challenging times. A small gesture of caring can spread hope. And hope helps to carry on…… Peace and love to everyone.
