During this COVID19 crisis we are asking for support,
The Women’s Centre of Calgary provides assistance, support and connection for thousands of women in our community each year. We are asking for support to continue to provide direct assistance to women. We also need help with our technology efforts so we can continue to provide community connection for women who are isolated. The Women’s Centre continues to be open via phone: 403 264 1155, email: firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook Messenger to provide support and connection for women.
In order to meet community need, the Women’s Centre COVID19 response requires:
- Funds to purchase grocery gift certificates
These will be made available for women and their families who are unable to access the food bank during this time. Each month the Women’s Centre provides emergency food hampers to over 500 women and their families to help them get through a short-term crisis. We are no longer able to provide this support. To meet the needs of the families and help alleviate some of the crisis families are experiencing right now, we will provide food gift certificates that will be mailed or delivered to women and their families.
- Funds to support the licensing and development of online connection opportunities
These software and technical solutions could include: chat rooms, workshops via Zoom, Tik Tok, YouTube, etc. as well as other communication enhancements required to ensure that we can continue to connect with women and families who are isolated.
We thank you for your continued support of women in the community and hope that you and your family, friends and neighbours stay safe and healthy during this difficult time.
Our trust-based work, supported by more than 800 active volunteers,
Enabling a woman to both get support and give back as she is able provides her with opportunities to feel valued and to maintain a sense of dignity and belonging. At the Women’s Centre, every woman’s participation is respected and valued. We know that diverse participation is necessary for the community to benefit from the strengths and perspectives that women hold.
There are so many ways you can get involved at the Women’s Centre. An important way to ensure the sustainability of our work is by donating.
“The Women’s Centre provides women with a safe space to be heard, to listen, and to make friendships with likeminded women. As humans we have a need to feel like we belong somewhere – therefore it changes lives in a positive way.”
