Thank you to Sobey’s on Highland Road!
Tim, the store Manager, called Anselma House and very generously donated a bicycle for a child leaving the shelter. As the weather is still fair and most kids are back at school, this type of donation is very appreciated.
Bicycles are one way to help kids learn a skill and give them self confidence. When the other kids their age all have bikes, their feelings of being different or left out rise to the surface and can lower self esteem if they can’t fit in.
This gift of a bicycle will not only help keep the kids healthy and happy, but will open up a world of activity and fun.
We are very thankful to Sobeys for this donation, and for thinking of the women and children we serve through Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region.
