PenFinancial Credit Union has announced a $25,000 pledge to support Gillian’s Place Build a Safer Future campaign. This donation is part of PenFinancial’s Truly Local Commitment which aims to help improve lives and strengthen communities.
As one of Ontario’s first shelters for women and children, Gillian’s Place has been providing safe refuge and non-residential programs that enable women, non-binary individuals, and their children to break the cycle of violence for over 40 years. With demands for services rapidly increasing, this pledge to the Build a Safer Future campaign will help support critical activities including the creation of the Centre for Violence Prevention and Outreach Support, and expansion of their facilities.
PenFinancial has been a long-time supporter of Gillian’s Place across various programs in the past including the Wrapped in Courage campaign, Gifts of Hope campaign, and as a breakfast sponsor. In addition to the Build a Safer Future pledge, PenFinancial will also continue as the Presenting Sponsor for this year’s Walk a Mile in HER Shoes.
