Giving creates a lasting impact
We continue to build the strength of our organization in collaborating with our existing long standing relationships; corporations, foundations, small businesses, associations, community organizations, individuals and recognize all levels of government.
Your continued gifts will support more abused women and their children to take those necessary first steps towards their journey to a safe and happier life. We offer our heartfelt thanks to all of our donors for their generous support ensuring the shelter facility and essential support services of Gillian’s Place. Together let us continue empowering abused women of Niagara.
Donor Hall of Fame
This August we were the recipients of a portion of the proceeds from the Canadian Women’s Foundation campaign to Help Raise Hope for Women who have experienced violence. Thank you to the Canadian Women’s Foundation and their campaign partners Winners/HomeSense and Rogers Media. Together these organizations raised 2.5 million across Canada, through the sale of merchandise and donations collected in store as well as online. We are grateful for the ongoing efforts of these organizations to provide support to Gillian’s Place and other services for abused women across Canada, that work to end violence against women in our communities.
This July Nicole had the pleasure of meeting with Royal LePage real estate agents and accepting donations from their Hampers of Hope campaign. Incredibly, the Royal LePage agents put together 200 themed hampers, to support women’s shelters in Niagara. These hampers provided women with items that are very much needed when starting a new household, such as kitchen tools and accessories, bedding, linens, baby care items, children’s clothing and accessories, non-perishable foods, household items, and much, much more! We are so appreciative of Royal LePage and their ongoing efforts to support Gillian’s Place.
For the last 3 years, Genesis Hockey League Niagara has generously donated a variety of items such as non-perishable foods, clothing, school supplies, personal hygiene items, baby care items, and household items to Gillian’s Place. At the end of the summer, the players bring their donations to the league’s BBQ and draft day and each year we are overwhelmed by their support. Thank you to the players and organizers for your ongoing kindness and generosity!
This summer Linda and Matt McCarthy provided Gillian’s Place with items for kids that Matt collected with help from the kids at his school. Matt asked his schoolmates to bring school supplies, games, toys, books and personal hygiene items as he and his mom, Linda wanted to donate items to kids in need in Niagara, as well as in Jamaica. Linda and Matt choose Gillian’s Place to donate the items to locally, and Linda was also able to bring items to a school in Jamaica, after winning a trip on a radio contest. Thank you Linda and Matt for your hard work and thoughtfulness!
On behalf of the thousands of women and their children who benefit from our support services, thank you for your commitment and generous support!
