(Left to right) In September 2020, Sylvie Guenther, Executive Director, Hiatus House, presented Mary-Ann Stark and Bonnie Pacuta (lead partner, Rotary Club of Windsor-Walkerville) with a Certificate of Appreciation for donating over 70 baskets through Windsor Basketeers' inaugural campaign.
Please help us provide unwavering support during these uncertain times!
Tragically, domestic violence is on the rise and during the pandemic, abused and compromised women need people to care about them more than ever. If you are looking for a meaningful way to help, Windsor Basketeers offers a loving and giving pathway to help women purchase much-needed items—providing the hope and encouragement they deserve.
Following a successful and heart-warming inaugural year, Windsor Basketeers is honoured to be able to launch our 2020 campaign! While things are going to be handled a lot differently this year, we know that everyone’s efforts to support the women who rely on Hiatus House will be graciously received.
With your generous donation, we will purchase gift cards, assemble them into wrapped gift bundles, and deliver them to Hiatus House on Saturday, November 21, 2020. The gift cards will provide women at risk with the opportunity to purchase exact household and personal care items they need to transition from the shelter to their new home.
I launched Windsor Basketeers because I wanted to give back to my community. I didn’t realize just how satisfying an experience it would be, and I am absolutely overwhelmed by YOUR generosity and golden hearts. There were many stories, hugs and even tears shared during our November 2019 drop-off event, which made me even more committed to keeping this annual initiative focused and strong!
I invite YOU to join me, Bonnie and others in standing behind brave women on their journey to a new beginning.
The deadline for donation is Monday, November 16, 2020.
With warm regards,
Mary-Ann Stark, Windsor Chapter coordinator
