What local charity are you sponsoring?
I will be sponsoring the Junior League of Halifax.
Why did you choose them for RESAgives Program?
Well they actually chose me and needless to say, I was honoured when they asked me to decorate one of three houses that will be highlighted this year in their annual ‘Homes |for the Holidays’ fundraiser, now in its 23rd year. The work that they do is far reaching and much needed. Hence the honour!
This event provides the Junior League with much needed resources to support vital community projects. Their priority is to help women and children by creating programs that are lacking in the community.
For the last three years they have been committed to fostering healthy families and
easing the burden of childhood obesity in the Halifax Regional Municipality. They
have partnered with Supportive Housing For Young Mothers (SHYM) which provides safe housing and programming for homeless mothers or those at risk of becoming homeless. They hold healthy eating sessions and running clubs through the Metro area’s Boys and Girls Clubs. They have also, this year, expanded their community impact by establishing partnerships with Ronald MacDonald House, Spryfield Youth Cafe and the IWK Hospital’s Compass Program.
