Women’s Centre of York Region (W.C.Y.R.) works to improve the lives of local women facing challenges with mental healthdomestic violencefinancial insecurity, and unemployment.“

For many years, the clients of W.C.Y.R. have been the recipients of the generous Christmas Stocking Programme coordinated by the Aurora United Church Women (A.U.C.W.) and supported by the entire A.U.C. congregation.

However, with the public health restrictions that all of us are continuing to experience, A.U.C.W. will again be collecting only monetary donations to support the clients of the Women’s Centre just as we did in 2020.  These monetary donations will be used for the purchase of gift cards appropriate to the needs of the organization’s clients.  We hope that the members of A.U.C.W. and the greater A.U.C. community will participate in this programme with the sole goal of providing much needed support for the centre’s clients.

The A.U.C.W. suggests the following:

1.    For A.U.C.W. members:  Make your donations to your unit treasurer as you have been doing during the period of COVID-19 restrictions. 

2.    For all other donors:  Send your donations to Karen Allen c/o Aurora United Church 15186 Yonge Street Aurora, ON L4G 1L9 Telephone Number: 905 – 751 – 7218

All donors note:

1.    Cheques should be made payable to “Aurora United Church Women” with the memo “Women’s Centre of York     Region”.

2.    All donations should clearly indicate the name, address, and phone number of the donor.

3.    Donations of $10 or more will be receipted by Aurora United Church Women before the end of February 2022.

4.    Donations will be accepted until the end of Friday, November 26, 2021


The A.U.C.W. hopes that you will consider supporting this worthy cause.
