The Redwood Shelter plays a very important part in my life and family. Thank goodness we don’t live in a world where we rely on a single patron to fund all of our hopes and dreams!
Your support helps each family who comes through Shelter doors to heal and build a brighter future.
This is the charity which is very dear to me. Redwood is at West-End, Toronto, I volunteer with the Shelter starting from 2003 till today. After seeing the direct impact on Every dollar that we contribute and donate is so impactful and help combat poverty, hunger, homelessness and social isolation and more over providing the shelter for Children and Women fleeing from abuse, violence and fear and giving them chance to live in the world free of any type of Oppression. When families have nowhere else to turn, they can find sanctuary and support at the Shelter in time of CRISIS .
Together, we can lift our community up and provide relief to our most vulnerable neighbors! At one occasion of my volunteering taking women to a ball game this lady was so fascinated and started jumping up and down, seeing the Lake shore and she informed me that she is almost 43 years old and never seen a water body so huge, as she was kept locked for most of her life in 4 walls of her home, she never knew how the outside world is beyond. This was just 2 sentence but it stuck with me till today what we see and do every day, we just take for granted and in-fact whine about a good day too, but all this small things have a huge impact on women who are captivated and victim of violence and abuse and with little of our donation we can can make this holidays cheerful, meaningful and beautify which they can remember for a long time and thank us the SCOTIABANKERS for making this Christmas and holidays worth remembering.
You can spread holiday cheer when you give a Gift to Empower.
