Today over 600 baskets full of items to help women leaving a shelter with new beginnings, were delivered to a location in Mississauga – and by tonight, they will have been transported to local shelters.
This is the 20th year for this fabulous grass-roots organization. You can read all about their efforts on their website. Please consider donating a basket next year.
This year, Sheila’s fabulous employer, Cineplex Media, donated 10 baskets! So fantastic!!!! Sheila did all the shopping for these as well as for the baskets we donated personally – quite an effort. Sheila had all the baskets up in our spare bedroom to keep the curious cats from having too much fun with them. This morning, we hauled them downstairs and filled 3 vehicles. Big thanks to Diana for coming to help with the delivery!
I also want to give a shout out to my friend Cindy in Ottawa who, along with her retired Canada Post employees book club, assembled and donated their first basket! Also, one more shout out to our friend Tonia, who donated her first ever basket this year!
