There are so many events, activities and wonderful things going on around us at all times, helping people in need in our communities that we often have no idea about!
Did you know that there's a group of 100+ women that meet 4 times a year, donate $100 each, raising $10,000 each meeting and nominate a charity to be the recipients of the money raised? Who knew, and what a great idea!
What a great idea and a great way to make large donations that help make a difference in the community. The organization is called 100+ Women Who Care Kingston, and if you've not yet heard of them, we really think that will want to check them out.
During the most recent quarterly meeting, only a few nights ago, Dawn House was so incredibly fortunate to be nominated as the recipient of this meeting's donation. For that, we are incredibly thankful. Dawn House receives no ongoing government funding. In order to offer the services we do, we rely heavily on donations like these, donations from individuals, grants and other pockets of funding in order to continue operating in the capacity in which we do.
There are two ways that we plan on using this money:
Our Supportive Housing Program needs
Client needs, eg: transportation and medical/dental not covered by other plans
The women and staff at Dawn House are again, so very thankful for such and kind and caring community and for all of the help that we receive. Thank you!
