Sudbury Women’s Centre aimed to raise $40,000 this winter through its 40 Years, 40 Days, $40K anniversary fundraising campaign.

Well, that goal was not only met, but exceeded. A total of $53,281 was raised.

“Growth, where it matters, can take a village – and our village has undoubtedly come together to make this event a resounding success!” said Sudbury Women’s Centre (SWC) executive director Giulia Carpenter.

“Even in these difficult times, the generosity and support of our community never ceases to amaze us. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Sudbury!”

These funds will be instrumental in SWC’s growth, as the need for services within our community continues to rise.

Part of this growth includes the expansion of My Sister’s Closet (MSC), which includes the opportunity of MSC being housed in its own location, to better serve the City of Greater Sudbury.

SWC said it appreciates the community’s patience through MSC’s transition. In addition, partnership development means SWC will be able to offer more services to clients under one roof. Many of those seeking support services access multiple agencies.

It is SWC’s goal to provide assistance through collaboration for the benefit of these clients.

SWC offered a special thank you to 100 Women Who Care Sudbury Chapter and Doyle Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram for their substantial contributions to this campaign.
