Rowan House wrapped up its fiscal year on a high note with several generous donations in March.
The High River Shopper’s Drug Mart presented us with a cheque for just over $5,500 raised through their Tree of Life Campaign.
- Branch Manager of the High River Bank of Montreal, Rebecca Sutherland, came by for a tour and donated $5,000.
- The Save the Homeless (SHT) organization—a group of grade 5 girls from Joe Clark school-had a booth at the Health & Wellness Fair selling hand-made items raising $500.
- The Optimist Club of High River dropped of a huge delivery of in-kind items from our urgent needs list—including things like toilet paper and paper towel that aren’t always the most exciting things to give.
Rowan House is truly grateful for all of the community’s on-going support as we work to raise approximately $600,000 each year for programs and services not covered by government funding. It costs $200 a day to support one person (woman or child) in shelter but these services are provided to them for free.
Thank you for your help in making this a possibility.
