Harrison Place, an offering of the Transition House, provides supportive, transitional housing for single women aged 45 to 65 who have left abusive relationships. There are 23 affordable one-bedroom suites where women can stay for up to three years. Harrison Place supports residents in becoming independent and self-reliant, through counselling support, activities and life skills training.
This year yoUnlimited will celebrate these women's resiliency and tenacity for moving forward in their lives by creating a 'giving circle' - we are asking the members of our community to join us, and bring items to prepare gift bags for these women, which will be delivered to them for Christmas morning.
Please register and select an item that you will bring from the list. When you click above to register, you will have the opportunity to select from one of these items, valued at approximately $15 - $25 each. You may select more than one item
- Cineplex Ticket Pack (best to purchase at CostCo)
- Gift Cards - Fairway Grocery Store, London Drugs, WalMart
- Bus Tickets - Adult tickets - can purchase at 7-11
- Tea Towels, Handmade Soaps
- Gift Certificates for massage, manicures or pedicures
Then... you will bring your selected items to our Christmas Giving Event and participate in the wrapping of your gifts and others that we will purchas through fundraising, sign Christmas cards for each of the women and enjoy a cup of tea and community.
Please share this event with your friends and invite them to join us!
If you are unable to attend but would like to make a financial contribution (or drop your item off in advance) that is awesome too. Please be in touch with Carolyne at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
