Basketeers was started out of the Greater Toronto Area more than 14 years ago because of an oversight: It was easy to find groups willing to buy or sponsor Christmas gifts for children, but their mothers seemed to be forgotten. Considering many women leave their homes with little more than the clothes on their back, the original concept was to “support women in new beginnings” throughout the GTA and has grown to cover ten major areas across Ontario.
Since 2009, families, individual and groups have generously donated over 500 beautifully wrapped baskets to the many abused women living at Nova Vita over the holidays.
It is wonderful to see this campaign grow each year and express to abused women in our community that people care.Thank so much for your generous donations; we couldn’t do this without you!
To register for a basket please contact Joanna at firstname.lastname@example.org (519)-752-1005 ext. 222.
