Recipient: Women & Children's Shelter of Barrie   Initiative: Food4Friends

Thanks so much for coming in today with such a wonderful donation! We can’t thank you enough and I know how big of an impact that makes on our residents here at the shelter. So thank you for helping us remind our women they are not alone.

On most nights, we have over 30 women and children staying in the shelter. They will stay an average of 3 months, often arriving with little more than the clothes on their backs. We do everything we can, above and beyond, to meet the unique needs of each woman and child. First and foremost we provide a safe place to stay, food, warm beds, and all the guidance and counseling supports to aid them on their journey.

We  thank you and the Christadelphian Church for your generosity and donations of wish list items (snacks, toilet paper, cereal) for the shelter. We cannot express how important your support is to us. You are helping to provide a safe refuge to women and children during a very critical time in their lives. Their home is not a safe place for them and they are looking to us for help.

Again thank you.


With warmest thanks,

Kaity Fotherby
