The Great Giving Challenge is a national public contest to benefit any registered Canadian charity. Every $1 donated to a registered charity on CanadaHelps.org or givingchallenge.ca, automatically enters the charity to win a $10,000 donation, provided by The GIV3 Foundation.
Home Base Housing is just such a charity!
The challenge begins on June 1, 2015 and ends on June 30, 2015 at 11:59:59 PM (Pacific Daylight Time). The draw for the prize takes place on Canada Day. What a great way to celebrate!
What would Home Base Housing do if we won?
We would enhance the ID Bank and Community Voice Mail programs.
The ID Bank (Identification Bank) provides assistance with the application for identification along with financial support to cover the costs of identification. For youth and adults experiencing homelessness, the ID Bank can provide a secure, private and accessible place to store ID.
The Community Voice Mail Program keeps people connected with organizations, landlords, employers, family and physicians, by providing a voice mailbox that is accessible from any location.
Our community partners such as the Salvation Army and South Frontenac are able to access these programs for the individuals they work with.
