West Niagara Second Stage Housing & YWCA

second stage 4

Today we had the pleasure of visiting the West Niagara Second Stage Housing.  We were there to drop off a check for $2,000  from the Unifor Social Justice Fund to help them provide services to homeless/abused women and their children.  We toured the facility with Executive Director Erin Griver, During the tour I noticed a table covered with purses, Erin explained they were all donated and stuffed full of essential items, the purses were ready to be handed out to clients. Erin said that it is a tremendous boost to receive a new purse with practical items, sometimes there is even a surprise gift card, it is a wonderful idea. The main floor office was packed with toys, food items all bagged and boxed ready to be distributed.   Elizabeth Zimmerman  also received a check for $2,000 for the YWCA in  St Catharines   These presentations bring the total donated around the community to over $20,000 a remarkable accomplishment.

Thanks You all for your generosity, together we make a difference in people lives.
