Give Me Shelter was started in 2004 by Global Edmonton’s Lynda Steele in support of the 5 Edmonton area women’s shelters. The campaign objective is to collect much needed gifts and toiletries for the women and children fleeing domestic abuse over the holiday season.
From Monday, November 23rd until Friday, December 11th you can drop off new and unwrapped gifts and toiletries. (Please no used clothing.) Cash and cheque donations will also be accepted. Cheques can be made out to Give Me Shelter and tax receipts will be given for all donations over $25. You can also donate online at www.acws.ca – and click on the ‘donate now’ logo and direct to the Give Me Shelter campaign.
