Support women fleeing abuse; purchase of a purple scarf, now until December 6th

This November, YWCA Peterborough Haliburton and United Way of Peterborough & District are joining with women’s shelters across Ontario to take part in the Wrapped in Courage campaign. November is Woman Abuse Prevention Month, and we invite everyone to purchase and wear a purple Wrapped in Courage scarf in support of local women fleeing abuse. Scarves are $15 each, 2 for $25, and are available at YWCA (216 Simcoe St., Peterborough) and the United Way (277 Stewart St.) All funds raised will support services for women and children at YWCA.
