Thank you for helping!
Our operating expenses have tripled since we opened our newly renovated shelter and we do not have funding to support the increase. Our Outreach programs are overwhelmed by the demand from women and children in Lanark County in need of support. We need your help!
Here are some of the ways you can help! Choose from the following options or give us a call at 613-257-3469 to discuss what works best for you.
Host a Fundraiser on LCIH’s Behalf
Indulge in creativity! Encourage your business, school, family or community group to organize their own fundraiser on behalf of Lanark County Interval House!
Not sure what to do? Organize an event or initiative that reflects your particular group’s interests, pastimes, or passions—if you love to be outdoors, maybe you could consider how you can organize a “Hike Healing”. If you love to bake, why not try to organize a unique baking lesson with friends and family? And if you just love plain, crazy fun, try a costume party or dare to dye your hair the colours of the rainbow—if your colleagues donate enough pledges! Contact the Fundraising Coordinator at 613-257-3469 to discuss it. or Click for more information >>
