Shelter Movers Ottawa has been around since October 2017. We started quite small, but grew really fast. When we hit 100 moves, it was a big celebration. Last year, when we held our gala, we were happy to have completed 250 moves. This year we’re on track to complete 500 moves. While this may be a milestone for us, it really showcases how prominent the issue of domestic abuse is, and the need for our services. With the increased isolation during the pandemic, we’ve seen a nearly 40% increase in requests for our services.
While we can’t host our regular fundraising events this year, we decided to do something to raise people’s spirits. We’ve decided to brighten up Ottawa!
Individuals and businesses throughout our community are encouraged to decorate their door, register in our contest, and participate in a little friendly competition by getting their supporters to donate to their page. The door that’s raised the most donations is our winner!
In honour of getting us to our 500th move, we’re giving away over $500 in prizes!
