Each season we partner with local and global organizations that are making extraordinary strides in positively impacting our world. We tell the stories of change that are happening because of how YOU contribute to New West Gives Back. We are so excited to raise awareness and support for these wonderful organizations and truly believe that with your help and God’s provision nothing is impossible!
This season, New West Society members recognized the great need that was evident within our own community. As such, we collected gloves and toques for the hamper ministry at Centre Street Church, and for youth in need through Gear Up For Winter. Gear Up For Winter is an organization that has an annual event to help homeless youth prepare for the winter season by giving them each a backpack full of personal care supplies. We are so grateful to have been able to share our love in this tangible way, and want to thank each person who helped meet this important need.
Last season, we supported the Calgary Pregnancy Care Centre and Gear Up For Winter. Audience members were invited to participate in our donation drives, and we collected an amazing amount of new baby items for clients of the Pregnancy Care Centre, and were able to give almost 1000 bottles of shampoo and conditioner to the youth who are supported by Gear Up For Winter.
