Support for Society of St. Vincent de Paul

By Tanya Haughey

The Tanya Haughey Real Estate team has been assisting the Society of St Vincent de Paul for the last three years and is proud to have raised almost $13,000 during that time. This charity directly assists families in our local community.

You might not realize that there are so many people in need all around us. As a realtor, I know that there are a lot of people in this area that supplement their income with a tenant. We live in an amazing area with beautiful homes and you wouldn’t ever think that there could be people struggling right next door.

I am grateful to have met Bill Murray (not the actor), who is the treasurer of the Society.  He lives here in Centennial and most times delivers grocery store gift cards, Walmart gift cards, and household items himself!

A huge thank you to our amazing community that has contributed to my Charity Drive for Christmas for the last three years, and my Annual Scavenger Hunt, which will happen again this June and raise money for our charity.

Donation goes directly to Julliette’s Place

By Heather Lemieux

I am a passionate supporter of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and Juliette’s Place, which is the closest shelter to us, where women and their children fleeing domestic violence are welcomed and receive the necessary help and resources in their time of crisis

Julliette’s Place opened in 1990 and it stands as a beacon of hope and refuge for abused women and their children.The shelter supports all women and their children to live a life free of violence and abuse and helps them plan the next steps and initiate the healing journey. For 31 years, Julliette’s Place has provided counselling, therapeutic programming, housing and legal assistance, community outreach, and support service

The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, founded in 1998, has raised more than $35 million to support abused women and families living in shelters across Canada.

Thank you to the CCRA for your generous $2,000 donation. It has gone directly to Julliette’s Place and will be used to support women and children in our community who are in crisis.
