Plan a Fundraising Event

The Women’s Interval Home is only partially funded by the government, therefore we rely on the generous support of our community to help us cover the additional costs required to provide a safe place for women and children who have experienced domestic violence. Planning a third party fundraising event for our shelter is a great way to not only raise funds, but also advocate and create awareness on domestic violence in Sarnia-Lambton. 

How to Plan an Event

step 1) Choose an event that you would like to organize. Some ideas include: a sporting tournament, an auction, a raffle, a BBQ, a gala… the possibilities are endless. 

Step 2) Fill out our Third Party Fundraising application and email it to our fundraising coordinator kyla@womensintervalhome.com

Donate Proceeds

Are you a local business that wants to support the Women’s Interval Home? One way you can do so is by running a campaign where a portion of your sales for a specific event or product are donated to the Women’s Interval Home. This is a great way to advocate for women and children who experience domestic violence in Sarnia-Lambton by creating awareness through your marketing campaign for a specific product or experience. Please contact our fundraising coordinator to find out how to donate by phone: 519 336 5200 ext 235, or email kyla@womensintervalhome.com 

Some past proceed events hosted by local businesses include:

  • A portion of every candle, bracelet, or t-shirt sold
  • A portion of every ticket bought for a virtual paint night
  • A portion of every meal sold donated

Organize an Item Drive

Running an item drive is a great way to create awareness of domestic abuse in your community while collecting items that women and children are most in need of in our shelter. The Women’s Interval Home is now only accepting new unopened items. The needs of our shelter are constantly changing. In order to know the most up to date needs of our shelter please contact our fundraising coordinator Kyla by email kyla@womensintervalhome.com. She will send you an up to date wish list for our shelter.
