Building Opportunities for Organizations using our Strengths and Talents
BOOST Recipient for 2022/2023
"Our priority over the past 47 years has been to offer support services that can help families, children, and our community flourish. We use a strengths-based perspective that offers ways of working with people where the focus is on abilities and potential. We believe in a holistic approach that recognizes everyone is unique and resilient."
The BOOST program was created in 2011, to support a local registered non-profit organization each year.
As a diverse group of women, we offer our support monetarily, and also with skills and talents which may not otherwise be available to the recipient group.
Our intention is to further develop their purpose and fulfill their wish lists.
We start each membership year in September, announcing our B.O.O.S.T. recipient. For the remainder of our membership year, we raise funds monthly through 50/50 draws at our meetings, and through other events hosted by members. We collect donations of items our BOOST recipient has requested at our December meeting. In the past we have donated volunteer hours on a variety of projects, from wielding hammers for Habitat for Humanity, to hosting cooking classes for the Indigenous Women's Sharing Society.
