JUST IN TIME FOR THE COLD WEATHER, GERANIUM HOMES AND PACE CREDIT UNION HAVE joined together to donate 300 pairs of the Official Canadian Olympic Team Red Mittens to York Region area shelters. Recipient agencies are Blue Door Shelters, Yellow Brick House and Sandgate Women’s Shelter.
Patti Bell, executive director of Blue Door Shelters, and Lorris Herenda, executive director of Yellow Brick House, received their donations at the Neighbourhoods of Cardinal Point Sales Centre, where Geranium Homes is now selling the sixth Phase of this master-planned ravine community in Stouffville.
“This gift is quite unexpected, and we are grateful to Geranium Homes and Pace for this practical and timely donation,” says Bell. “Thanks to you, many clients of our three Blue Door Shelters will receive a new pair of red mittens providing them warmth this winter.”
Says Herenda, “At Yellow Brick House, the women and children that flee violent homes, often do not have any possessions. As the cold winter months approach, we turn to our community for support. This donation of Official Olympic mittens will be very special to our clients as they not only provide them with warmth, but will also give them a sense of belonging to this community. That is a gift straight from one heart to another. For that, thank you.”
For Geranium Homes and Pace, the opportunity to support Canadian athletes through the purchase of the mittens and also provide these winter clothing items to York Region-area shelters, was truly a win-win.
