Wilbur-Ellis Feed donated $10,000 (CAD $13,251) to the Welcome Centre Shelter for Women, a safe housing provider that exists to reduce the devastating impact of homelessness and poverty by providing safe emergency shelter and transitional support to women and families at risk of or experiencing homelessness in Windsor, Ontario. The donation will go toward the center’s Pink Door Campaign, a $2 million effort to find a larger, permanent space to provide more beds for single women and family shelter units.
“When my son went off to university, I finally had the time to give back to my community,” said Wilbur-Ellis Feed Canada Transportation Specialist Tanya Kornacker, who has been volunteering at the shelter since 2015. “The homeless are where my heart and passion was and continues to be.”
The Welcome Centre Shelter for Women hopes to purchase their new “forever home” this year—serving both women and families, 24/7, under the same roof.
