February is always heart month for OWBN and this year we are doubling the sentiment.

First, this is when we show our solidarity with women in our community who have been forced to leave their homes. While we fundraise year-round for Haven Society, in February we also collect gently used handbags and unopened personal items. We encourage you to bring your items or cash donations to this event where we will be presenting Haven Society with the proceeds donated throughout the year by our generous members & guests.

Second, we are going to make the evening all about you, your business or profession and what’s important to you. This evening will be all about getting to know each other and our professional & personal endeavours. Be prepared for a high energy, fun night of networking games and activities.

Haven House:

The Oceanside area’s safe house provides temporary shelter to support women of all ages and their children who have experienced domestic violence. The Oceanside house covers Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Qualicum Bay, Nanoose Bay, Errington, Coombs, Whiskey Creek and Bowser. Last year Mid Island Haven Society supported over 3000 women and their children

When women and their children leave an abusive home, it is usually in the middle of the night at a moment notice. They usually leave all their personal belongs behind. If you have a new or used purse(s) and you wish to donate, please bring your donation to OWBN 21 Feb meeting. We will also be accepting gently used cell phones and cash donations. All cash donations over $20.00 will be issued with a tax receipt. Tax receipts will be mailed out within 4 to 5 weeks.

If you are unable to attend the OWBN meeting, there are two others drop off locations Arbutus Fashions Qualicum Beach or Speedy Glass Parksville. Alternatively reach out to Holly Heppner at 250-927-2786 or email holly@hollyheppner.com to arrange pick up. Cash donations can also be made directly to the Haven Society website under DONATE NOW.
