To Whom It May Concern:

The Elmwood Community Resource Centre (ECRC) is a not for profit organization that has been helping the community since 2001. Our mission is build community in Elmwood with resources and supports that make the neighbourhood a great place to live work and raise a family. ECRC’s offers individuals access to a free phone, computer and fax machine, a safe drop-in space. A few of the services offered through the Centre include Counselling, Newcomer Immigrant Settlement support, Adult Literacy program, Elmwood Youth Employment Experience, Afterschool programs, Mental Wellness programming. Among the many services we provide, we also offer Women’s Empowerment Project. This event is filled with several dun activities including refreshments, dainties, and sandwiches. There will also be live music, cake decorating and tasting competition. We are very excited to add a live cake auction to the festivities this year.

This year’s fundraiser funds will go towards the Awakening Women’s Empowerment program. The Awakening Women’s program support women and their children who have experienced violence and trauma to rebuild their lives and move forward. The program offers group and individual counselling and employment coaching, children’s therapy. With Awakening in mind, we are asking for donations in order to help support our Awakening, Women’s Empowerment Project. A gift of:

– $150 supports children of women affected by violence and trauma to attend an Early Learning and Literacy program to support their learning and development of gross and fine motor skills
– $250 supports women to overcome barriers to employment
– $500 supports women and their children to receive basic necessity (support with housing, food, emergency furniture, legal support)
– $1000 supports women and their children to access counselling supports for 1 year.

All donations over $25 will receive charitable tax receipts. Donations of $500 we will display your company’s logo at the event and promotional materials
