CARE Package Project
Time & Location
About the Event
The purpose of this project is to provide essential care package donations to The Women's Centre Grey Bruce Inc. for women and children that are escaping all types of violence and abuse. (https://www.facebook.com/insupportofthewomenscentregb/)
We will be joining alongside organizer Jessica Ferretti on September 12th for a march/rally Save the Children End Human Trafficking March in the City of Owen Sound to be a voice and cry for victims entrapped in sexual exploitation.
On that day and in the days leading up, we are asking if YOU will be a part of helping to provide for victims and survivors in our community who need your support by donating new essential care items to this project that will be packaged and delivered to our local shelter on Thanksgiving weekend as an expression of our thanks to our local shelter for helping those in need..
Emergency shelter is one of the most requested referrals survivors seek when reaching out for help when in crisis situations. A women or child's first moments after fleeing an unsafe environment can be scary and overwhelming. Care packages help those in process to feel supported, secure and believed. Our Women's Shelter relies on people like me and you to keep continuing that support. Let's do our part!
A booth will be available to drop items off at the " Save the Children End Human Trafficking March" on September 12th at 2 pm at the Queens Park Bandstand. We will continue to collect donations up to October 12th, as well so that we can make as many beautiful care bags for our women and children that need us.
