We would like to express our immense gratitude to everyone who donated items to, volunteered time, and shopped at our Island Barter Days garage sale. Your contributions enabled us to raise funds to support 16 families with the cost of counselling this year. It is great to partner with businesses and agencies who have a vision of building healthy individuals and stronger community.
As we were able to distribute the excess items within the community, your generosity was spread to other agencies as well — Pregnancy Care Centre, Habitat for Humanity, Canadian Diabetes Association, Barachah Place, and Loaves and Fishes. I am sure they are grateful for your contributions that will benefit their organizations.
We are proud to be a part of this community, and pleased that so many community members supported our vision of Neighbours Helping Neighbours. May God bless you for your generosity.
