This is The Bookshelf's 50th Christmas selling books in a downtown that we love.
Downtown Guelph has changed so much. The number of vulnerable people in this city has increased dramatically—those facing mental health crises, addiction, homelessness and food insecurity. Perhaps you feel compassion, sadness and even fear about what is happening. Maybe you want to reach out but feel paralyzed by confusion about how and where to help.
One thing that has been proven time and again: Having a place to call home is a big step towards recovery for everyone.
The Bookshelf is happy to support The Home for Good Campaign with a $20,000 donation, supporting a nationally recognized plan to solve homelessness in our community. Find out more at homeforgoodgw.ca.
Please join us in helping our neighbours. Donations can be made at The Bookshelf in any denomination.
Double your dollars to help solve homelessness! All gifts made to the Home for Good Campaign through The Bookshelf will be automatically doubled through a match by The City of Guelph.
Tax receipts will be provided by United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin for donations over $20.00.
Giving also brings happiness to the giver! Your donation will enter you into a raffle for a free cinema rental at the Bookshelf!
We wish all a happy holiday season.
