ShareLife 2016: Working wonders for those in our community…

“I first came to Rose of Sharon as a pregnant, young mom, thinking this would never happen to me,” explains Brittany, now with her five year old son Ethan and one year old daughter Sarah. At 17, Brittany came to the Rose of Sharon to enroll in the mother baby programs designed to assist her and her new family get on their feet. Everything from diapers, food, clothing, cooking classes, completion of high school education, Ontario Works application, resume assistance and more was available to her. Within a year, she was able to use her new-found skills to adjust to her new life. Brittany thanks ShareLife donors for their financial support to help them deal with the challenges they have faced, and learning to grow as a family and enjoy each other. Last year, over 6,300 young parents received the care, counseling and educational support they needed to care for themselves and their new families. Thank you for your contributions to this year’s campaign. We have collected $144,392 towards our parish goal of $219,000!

This year’s overall campaign goal of $12.95 million is needed to support our 42 Catholic agencies and grant recipients. Last year these ShareLife agencies provided service to over 114,000 people in more than 20 languages, treating them with compassion, care and respect.

Next Sunday, May 29, 2016 is ShareLife Sunday. Please give generously. Together we can work wonders!
