Contributing to our Community

The COVID-19 crisis has also created unique challenges to many of the health care providers and programs in our community. Our Auxiliary has been approached about helping with these extra challenges, in addition to our pre-decided funding commitments.

Other ways you can help:

  • Please donate online to help us continue to serve our community.
  • Consider becoming a monthly donor.
  • Honour and remember special anniversaries or loved ones with designated giving.
  • Continue to donate your quality used clothing and household items to the Auxiliary.

“I think people forget that it doesn’t take a big donation to help someone, just a lot of little donations.”
