Thank you for supporting Minwaashin Lodge and the Annual Windflower Holiday Book Sale. Our final report came in and the total number of books sold in November and December was 99 books. That is amazing and a cheque for $500 is on its way to Minwaashin Lodge!!
Thank you as well to all of you who made your own contribution to Minwaashin Lodge. The work that they are doing is remarkable and deserves our on-going support. You can still make a donation to them at any time throughout the year. Here is what they do every day in our community:
Minwaashin Lodge is a healing centre in Ottawa that provides a range of programs and services to First Nations, Inuit and Metis women and children who are survivors of domestic and other forms of violence, and who may also be suffering the effects of the residential school system.
The mission of Minwaashin Lodge is to provide wholistic programs and services for grandmothers, women, children and youth impacted by family violence and residential schooling. All programs and services are provided in the context of cultural beliefs and values as part of the healing journey.
All money donated will go to support First Nations, Inuit and Metis women and children to have a safe and warm place to stay throughout the cold winter still ahead.
