The Outreach committee has not yet heard back from Choices or The Bridge Prison Ministry but this is a message from Lisa Zanon at the Elizabeth Fry Society:
'We are very grateful that we are able to support our twenty women and keep them safe at our Ellen house program. We are thankful for you all offering support to us. At this time we would love for all of you to keep us in your thoughts and prayers. Our agency is financially well at this time to support our twenty women in our program, we do not require any funds for support at this time. However we would love to accept donations of items such as homemade goods, such as baked goods, breads or cookies, or homemade face masks if possible. I would be more then willing to come to you all and pick up items if this is something that you all wish to take part in. Please feel free to connect with me if you all wish.'
Please phone Valerie Jones at 905-584-0980 if you would like to donate some baked goods. We could discuss drop off or pick up arrangements.
