“You all got me back on my feet and brought back the light and strength in me.”
Unfortunately COVID-19 means the Medicine Hat Women's Shelter Society is unable to hold our 9th Annual Bread and Roses Gala. Alongside being a celebration of International Women's Day, the event is our biggest annual fundraiser which supports our vital programs and services for those fleeing from family violence.
While we can't come together for the Gala, many people in our amazing community are stepping up to make a donation to us, and challenging others to do the same - join in this #March4MHWSS fundraising challenge - and we can't wait to see everyone at the 2022 Gala!
What are some of the many ways your donation will make a difference:
“One child told me that their favourite part of the SAFE program was that when they went back to school in the fall they wouldn’t have to lie. On the first day of school each year, students are asked to share about their summer. This child would make up stories to hide that their summer was spent experiencing violence, abuse and isolation. They were excited to go back to school and tell their classmates real, true stories of the fun things that they did that year through SAFE."
