Western Financial Group donates to the Campbell River Women’s Resource Society

Western Financial Group donated $550 to the Women’s Resource Society which operates the Campbell River Women’s Centre.

The Campbell River Women’s Centre sees over 400 women a month from Campbell River to Port Hardy. It provides a number of different support services, such as a free store, which includes personal hygiene items.

There is a small breakfast corner, which provides women hot coffee and toast/bagels every morning. The centre also hosts regular lunches, and other fun games or crafts.

There is a drop in crisis worker, and a senior peer worker and the centre works very closely with partners, such as NIEFS, and hosts a trauma informed employment program for women.
