YWCA Peterborough Haliburton announced a charitable contribution of $20,000 from The Peterborough District Masonic Association, on Wednesday.

This donation will help ensure safe shelter and support services for local women and children experiencing violence.

“Community leaders like the Masonic Association who prioritize equity, safety and an end to gender-based violence are absolutely vital to our organization,” said Kim Dolan, Executive Director of YWCA Peterborough Haliburton. “We sincerely appreciate the commitment of local Association members, and those who generously support their fundraising efforts on behalf of the YWCA each year.”

Tom Mortlock, District Deputy Grand Master of the Masonic Association, and his family, has been actively involved in the YWCA’s fundraising events for many years.

YWCA Crossroads Shelter provides physical safety, 24 hour support, nutritious meals and personal care essentials for women in crisis.

Fundraising support from community groups like The Peterborough District Masonic Association is critical in order to bridge the gap that remains beyond government funding, ensuring that local services are available 365 days a year.
