Join us for A Reading of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol in Support of Local Women at St. Paul's Centre in Orillia
Since 2014, Dress for Success Orillia and Barrie has empowered women and non-binary individuals to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help them thrive in work and in life. We work with all women and non-binary individuals who are actively seeking employment, have scheduled job interviews, or have recently acquired a job or placement.
Green Haven Shelter for Women is a community-based, non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to women with or without dependent children who are experiencing gender-based violence in Orillia and area. We provide services including 24-hour safe emergency shelter; a crisis line; crisis counselling; information about community resources; emergency transportation; transitional housing support; and outreach and follow-up.
This year, our organizations are partnering on a new event: “A Reading of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol in Support of Local Women”. The goal of the event is to raise much needed funds for our two charities; to make our community aware of who we are and what great work we do; and lastly, to have fun and get in the Christmas spirit!
