YWCA Brandon Keeping Spirits Bright Fundraiser and Awareness Campaign for the 2016 Holiday Season

Brandon, Canada – December 1st 2016 – The YWCA Brandon announces their Keeping Spirits Bright Campaign for the holiday season. Please help us spread the word about “Keeping Spirits Bright” this holiday season.

Each year the YWCA Brandon Westman Women’s Shelter provides support and shelter to an average of 500 women and children who are fleeing family or domestic violence situations. When violence happens victims and their children will leave, often with no time to pack a bag or gather personal possessions. Help us to bring a little joy and cheer to families during this holiday season and light up our Tree of Safety – because we provide a safe place for women and children!

As of the end of November the YWCA Westman Women’s Shelter provided over 4,000 nights to women, men and children who were victims of domestic violence. Our goal is to raise $5,250, this represents $10 for every woman and child who spent a night in our shelter in the past year.

With each donation, our tree in the front yard at YWCA Meredith Place at 148- 11th Street, will light up a little more, with purple lights – purple lights for domestic violence.

Donate through our webpage- ywcabrandon.com. or ywcabrandon on facebook or by mail at 148-11th Street, Brandon, Mb R7A 4J4, to support our  Keeping Spirits Bright Campaign during this holiday season.
