2016 Helping Hands Women’s Charity Barbeque
Our team at Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services held its second annual Helping Hands Women’s Charity Barbeque in aid of Herizon House Women’s Shelter-a not-for-profit, charitable organization that provides a place of safety where women and children will feel accepted, supported and empowered as they move towards living their lives free of violence in Durham Region. By supporting organizations like Herizon House, we acknowledge that in order to end the cycle of violence we must work in partnership with our community .
As with all of our Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope charity events we host, there was no charge to attend however we did ask for our guests to donate non-perishable food items from our wish list to be used by the women and their children staying at the shelter and for their out reach program.
On Saturday, June 25th, we were once again delighted to invite our friends. family and local businesses owners around for this Helping Hands Women’s Charity Barbeque event, as it made for a fun and inspirational afternoon and helped the community.
Our Second Helping Hands Tree of Hope
“Sending out a special thank you to everyone who attended our Don of All Trades 2016 Helping Hands Women’s Charity Barbeque Event! Every one contributed a Helping Hand on our second Tree of Hope!”
So What Was On the Menu?
We offered our guests a variety of barbecued meats such as home-made Italian sausages, hamburgers, hot dogs, a variety of home-made salads, fresh fruit, coffee, tea and a very special Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope cake!
