Welcome to Prince Edward County Basketeers
Basketeers is an exciting initiative that actively engages people in building caring communities, by focusing on helping women who have suffered from violence and abuse. Through the donations of the many involved, women are provided some of the essential items they need to create safe, healthy and positive environments for themselves and their children. And because of the generosity of the PEC community in our past four annual drives, some lives have been made a little better and brighter.
By participating in the Basketeers' program, you are not only helping enable women in your community get a fresh start, you are offering them much-needed moral support - support that will go a long way to boosting their confidence and helping ensure their success in the long term.
Prince Edward County is fortunate to have Alternatives for Women, an agency providing a range of services and support for women breaking free from domestic violence. Programs offered include crisis intervention, safety planning, individual and group counselling, and a second stage housing program. But the problem is deep-rooted. Working together with Alternatives for Women, we can help eliminate some of the barriers women can face in their journey to a new life.
Please join in our Basketeers' effort in Prince Edward County!
With heartfelt thanks,
Kelly, Kim and Helene
