Holiday Wishes Program – Peel Children’s Aid.
SEW has adopted six families that have fallen on hard times and need help making Christmas special for their families. We want their children to wake up Christmas morning to the joy that all children deserve. We want them to have food on their plates and warm clothes and boots for this coming winter.
We will be holding a silent auction within our company with donations received from our suppliers, distributors and employees. SEW will match the money raised from the silent auction so that we can provide these families with a Christmas that everyone ought to have. www.peelkidsfoundation.ca/
