Join us for A Reading of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol in Support of Local Women at St. Paul's Centre in Orillia on Friday December 1st 2023
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.
After last year's successful event, our organizations are partnering again for: “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!
Our readers are back again this year!
