Women’s transition society seeking donations

Fundraiser will help provide shelter for women and children

  • Oct. 3, 2012 12:00 p.m.

The Sooke Transition House Society is a non-profit organization incorporated under the Societies Act of British Columbia.

Their purpose, since 1994, is to provide shelter for women and their children who are in crisis resulting from domestic violence. They also provide counselling, education, support and prevention services, as well as advocacy, so that they can assist others to live free of abuse and violence in all relationships.

On Nov. 2, the Sooke Chamber Of Commerce and the Sooke Transition House Society will host a joint fundraiser at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort. Their request at this time is for donations of gift certificates, services, or items for our live and/or silent auctions. If you could assist us in this area it would be greatly appreciated.

A charitable donation receipt equal to the value of the donated item or service will be issued upon request.

“We thank you for your support of the vulnerable women and children in Sooke and surrounding communities,” says   Arlene Rees, executive director. Call 250-642-2544, website: www.sooketransitionhousesociety.com
