Rowan House Says Thank You

Sharing Our Gratitude

Rowan House Society is blessed to have such amazing community support.

We cannot thank you enough for standing behind the work that we do. The need for domestic violence services remains high and we’ve been fortunate the last few years to be able to grow and expand our services to meet those needs.

Now the Society has been tasked with raising $800,000 of our total $2.14 million dollar budget to maintain our current operations and programming, and we’re grateful to the community for helping us accomplish this lofty goal.

First of all, thank you to everyone who made a donation when registering for the Millarville Half Marathon, or pledged one of our athletes. This event kicks off our summer awareness season and it raised over $2,000!

We’d like to recognize the Backyard Bootcampers who collected and donated over $1,000 through their fitness group; and the River City Classics Car club, participants in the Christmas in July Show and Shine and members of the community who stopped by our booth and made a donation on Canada Day. Together you raised over $1,000!

Thank you to the High River Rebekah Lodge for inviting us out to your last meeting and presenting us with a cheque for $500; and thank you to Colors and Corks for their Paint Night fundraiser for Rowan House, raising $360 for our Arts and Crafts program!

We’d also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone else who made a donation, cash or in-kind. Because of you, families continue to receive the support they need to rebuild their lives.
