The families, Board of Directors, and staff of the Red Door Family Shelter would like to sincerely thank the community for its overwhelming support during the holiday season.

This year, the Red Door was able to support many families with the help of our generous donors and family sponsors who provided gift packages of winter clothing, house wares, and gift certificates, as well as special holiday meals, food vouchers and even lovingly prepared stockings, gift boxes and toys for the children.

Premier McGuinty pays us a visit

On Friday Dec 7th, Premier Dalton McGuinty paid us a visit to deliver 100 jackets, gloves and snowsuits for our families with the help of Argos offensive guard Joe Eppele. 

The donation was part of a wager made with Alberta Premier Alison Redford on the 100th Grey Cup game.  The winner's choice of charity was to receive a donation from the losing team's Premier.  Instead, the Premiers decided to make everyone a winner and both donate to their charities of choice.

Thank you Premier McGuinty for this tremendous donation!
