Throughout the fall months, we were issued a challenge by Lewkowitz Financial. Could the London community match their generous donation of $50,000 in support of the emergency shelter program at Rotholme Family Shelter?
The challenge ran for six weeks – from mid-October to the end of November – and we are happy to announce we raised an additional $120,000 to provide safe emergency shelter, nutritious meals and other vital services for the families at Rotholme, bringing the total raised to just over $170,000!
“It warms my heart to see how generous so many of our clients are.” said Robert Lewkowitz, President of Lewkowitz Financial. “Letting families know they are loved at Christmastime and all year round – that’s something Lewkowitz Financial is glad to support!”
We’d like to extend our gratitude to the team at Lewkowitz Financial, as well as our donors who stepped up to match their gift. Thank you!
“Without this place, I was at a loss. I didn’t know what we were going to do, but Rotholme Family Shelter saved us,” says Greg, a grateful father of two. “Here, we eat three meals a day, every day. We never go hungry.” Because of the kindness of people like you, Greg and his family received vital support when they needed it the most.
