Make a difference!

Winter is the time of the year when the circle of life is at its grimmest point. Trees shed their leaves and the landscape is left bare. The cold weather keeps most indoors and closes to heaters and blankets. What about those who don’t have these luxuries? How do they keep warm? The HOPE FOR WINTER Campaign serves to fulfill the needs of the less fortunate during a challenging time of year. People who live on the streets are continually moving and may not sleep in the same place every night. They find it difficult to move around with blankets and heavy items. The aim of this winter campaign, is to make life a little easier by giving those living on the streets the tools to make life more bearable. This year’s campaign will focus on 5 essential services participating organizations offer to their clients:[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”677″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row 0=””][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text 0=””]
