Welcome to Guelph-Wellington Basketeers,
Since the launch of our local chapter in 2009, Guelph and Centre Wellington continue to come together as one generous and connected community! Last year, the Guelph-Wellington Basketeers chapter reached new heights, donating a record number of over 190 gift baskets to local women in need through our wonderful partners at the Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis Centre.
In light of COVID-19, Basketeers has made the decision to continue to support the Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis Centre (GWWIC) this fall, while keeping the health and safety of you (our gracious supporters), our volunteers and our recipients a top priority.
Basketeers 2020 will be contactless!
With your generous donation, I will purchase gift cards, assemble them into wrapped gift bundles, and deliver them GWWIC on Saturday, November 21, 2020. Gift cards for Walmart Canada and Canadian Tire (as chosen by GWWIC) will provide women at risk with the opportunity to purchase exact household and personal care items they need to transition from shelter to new home.
The deadline for donation is Monday, November 16, 2020.
*Please note Basketeers is not a registered charity. No tax receipt will be issued for donations.
Thank you in advance for joining the Guelph-Wellington Basketeers network this season!
