Niagara West Basketeers

Welcome to the Niagara West Chapter of the Basketeers!

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; it’s the only thing that ever has.

~Margaret Mead

Our family has been supporting the Hamilton Chapter of the Basketeers for several years. Last November, as we made the trek from Grimsby to Hamilton, my daughters asked why Grimsby didn't have its own drop off location. They had organized baskets at their school and sport club and thought it would be amazing to spread the word in Niagara. We discussed the idea of working together to introduce this wonderful program to the region and as a result the Niagara West Chapter of the Basketeers was founded. We are very excited to support women and children in the Niagara area who are transitioning from a shelter to a new beginning.

Please consider donating a basket or working as a team to collect items to help make this change easier. This is a very rewarding opportunity for team bonding in the workplace, sports teams, book clubs and/or school initiatives. Get together with co-workers, friends and family to prepare a basket that will directly support a family in need.

You tell a friend and they tell a friend, who tells another friend, who tells their colleague and they tell their friend who tells their colleague and so on...

Thank you for considering this opportunity and sharing this information with others!

~Linda, Laura, Julia and Victoria Watson
