This year marks the 9th annual Hope in High Heels Walk for the two Halton Women’s Place shelters. I would encourage you and your families to join Team Unifor at this event which consists of many Local Union Executive and Members, National Staff, my son Jordan and myself at this men’s only walk in heels to show support in ending violence against women at Emma’s Back Porch, 2084 Old Lakeshore Road, Burlington on Saturday, September 22nd, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.
Halton Women’s Place is the only women’s shelter in the Halton Region. HWP’s capacity continues to be at 100% at all times. Since 2015 the calls that the shelters receives has doubled. These crisis intervention counselors are now responding to more than 2100 crisis calls. In addition, they are providing service to almost 900 women and children through their residential and transitional programs.
Thanks to the support from everyone in the past few years we have raised approximately $346,000 for the shelter. My son Jordan and I were able to raise approximately $90,000 last year.
Please join Jordan and I at this important fund raising event and cheer us on.
