As part of our ongoing community outreach to our surrounding area, the Team at North Town Veterinary Hospital supports the Salvation Army Honeychurch Family Resource Centre located at 535 Main Street N in Brampton.
HoneyChurchThis Holiday Season at North Town Veterinary Hospital, our Clients and Team members generously donated just over 125lbs of toys and non-perishable food items. The Salvation Army Honeychurch Family Resource Centre is located just up the road from our hospital and is a place of refuge for women and children experiencing domestic violence. This facility is a crisis centre that operates 24 hours a day. When women make the decision to leave the abusive situation, they often turn up at the Shelter with nothing but the clothes on their backs and their children in their arms. North Town is very proud of the support that we have given our “Friends in Need“ over the years and make a commitment at various times of the year to help fill their cupboards at the Shelter.
With the support of our clients, we helped to make the situation, especially this Christmas, a little bit easier. We wanted to make sure that the babies, children, teens and Moms had a gift to unwrap Christmas morning at the Shelter and hopefully bring a smile, although maybe temporary, to their face.
We hope that those people that donated toys or food to our “Friends in Need” Drive enjoyed the complimentary pet nail trim and goodie bag that North Town provided. I know that we had clients that presently don’t have pets but wanted to support North Town and will “pay it forward” with the goodie bag and nail trim. How great is that! It is wonderful what we can accomplish, when we all unite together.
Thank you for your continued support of our Holiday Toy and Food Drive; every little bit helps! We hope that we can count on you again at Easter!
