GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that happens each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a time when Canadians come together to celebrate giving and participate in activities that support charities and non-profits.
Good Shepherd’s Family Centre—Hamilton’s only emergency shelter for families experiencing homelessness. Last year, we offered shelter to 120 families, comprising 469 adults and 256 children.
Coming to a shelter is extremely stressful for children, so we try to make our environment as welcoming and inviting as possible. Unfortunately, we haven’t had the funds available to update the playroom since 2005, when the shelter opened.
Your help is needed to replace toys, books, furniture and electronic equipment for the playroom. And with more and more school assignments being posted online, the children need shared access to four laptops so they don’t fall behind in class. The total goal for this Giving Tuesday campaign is $10,000.
Select the amount you wish to donate and then select GivingTuesday from the Designation drop-down menu and complete the rest of the form. If you prefer, you can donate by calling us at 905-528-6565 ext. 3330
