Help women we work with feel important, valued and thought about. Cheri from the Department of Human Services contacted us a little while ago, to say that their staff, about 550 of them wanted to fundraise for Catherine House.
You see, at Easter each year, they commit to fundraising for a homeless or domestic violence organisation. In previous years they have donated to the Hutt Street and the Magdalene Centre. So we were thrilled when the gift bearer arriv…ed last week with the donation of Easter Eggs and gift vouchers for clients in our Emergency Program. This will enable women to treat themselves to something, or buy a much needed personal item.
Gestures like this, make a big difference to women that are staying with us and working hard to get back on their feet. Knowing there are groups of people working together to make a difference to their lives helps them feel part of a circle of care. On behalf of Catherine House, a big thank you! Deirdre
