The Shoebox Project

From the Guelph Today article:

This is the first year the project has reached out local businesses to create boxes as a team building exercise and Jennifer Ferron, coordinator for the Guelph Wellington Chapter of The Shoebox Project for Shelters, said she knows of at least 10 staff drives being organized to create boxes.

Laura Hanley, executive director of Community Living Guelph Wellington, said the agency is acting as a drop-off point, but is also allowing the projects some space to do their sorting.

“We support adults with developmental disabilities, so we know about vulnerable populations and we thought this was a good way to partner,” said Laura.

Although both giver and receiver of the gifts remain anonymous, Jennifer said some people add a hand-written note to their boxes before delivering them to the drop off points.

“It could be as simple as a note saying ‘you’re awesome’ to ‘happy holidays’ or a holiday card,” said Jennifer.

She added, “some people put in a little poem to give it that personal touch so it’s clear someone put some thought into what’s in the box.”

Poinsettias for the Christmas season


Again this year, the M.A.U.D.E. Squad (Moms, Aunts, Uncles, Dads, Everyone) is selling poinsettias to raise funds in support of Community Living Guelph Wellington. Community Living has been providing services to people with an intellectual disability living in Guelph and throughout Wellington County for over 60 years. Including family and friends of those that receive service, it has been estimated that over two thousand  people are directly impacted by Community Living Guelph Wellington.

Thank you for considering this request for your support of the 2017 Poinsettia Fundraiser and the people we support at Community Living Guelph Wellington.

Over the past 11 years, the M.A.U.D.E. Squad has raised approximately $36,000 through our Poinsettia Fundraiser and has been able to support ARC Industries and Community Living in the following programs:

ARC Industries – General, Food Services, Gymnasium, Program Fees
Adult Day Services
Holody Home – Seniors Program
Supported Independent Living – S.I.L.
Group Homes

These poinsettias make great gifts and can decorate your business, office and/or home.
