We hope you and your loved ones are well in these unprecedented times. The COVID pandemic has had a profound impact on the lives of so many. The challenges to mitigate the harshest impacts require a broad and multi-faceted response.

Our ability to help individuals and families and communities in the Region of Durham is possible only with the assistance of our donors, volunteers and those who support our efforts in myriad ways. We’re grateful to them all. They demonstrate by their actions what best defines the finest elements of a community. We work with each other to help those less advantaged, and in times such as these we are reminded that communities which come out of these challenges in the best shape will be those that have risen to the challenges of helping. Thanks to all of you.

We’re excited to announce our Bid2Give Auction beginning tomorrow March 26th.

Bid2Give 
Auction Preview: Happening Now!
Bidding Opens: March 26 at 8:00 a.m.
Auction Closes: March 31 at 4:30 p.m.

Bid2Give is an auction featuring an eclectic mix of items which have all been sourced locally by our team of auction volunteers and staff. We’re proud to thank all of our donors and staff who have organized this event. Their efforts allow us to ensure that all of the auction proceeds will support our community COVID Relief and Recovery.

Our Bid2Give event was designed to help us replace some of the funding which we have had to forego as we have had to cancel special events in the past year due to COVID safety requirements. The auction features an interesting mix of items. Our emphasis was to highlight local businesses and craftspeople. We believe strongly in “supporting local”.

If ever there were a time when local support mattered, this is that time. Support local. Give local.

Please visit the site and if you can, invite your family, friends or colleagues to join us.

Thank you
