Windsor Residence for Young Men is to benefit from the
HOME DEPOT ORANGE DOOR CAMPAIGN
31 May to 24 June, 2018 - Walker and Division Road Store
The Orange Door Project fundraising campaign started Thursday May 31 at all The Home Depot stores across Canada. Buy a $2 “paper door” at the checkout or donate online! Together, we can put an end to youth homelessness in Canada.
Windsor Residence for Young Men and The Home Depot Walker & Division roads store joined in the Orange Door Campaign on Thursday. L to R: WRYM Executive Director Greg Goulin, WRYM President Susan Freeman, past resident and supporter Mike Rivard, and The Home Depot Assistant Store Manager Pat Nelmes.
One hundred percent of the funds raised at the Walker and Division roads store (store #7228) in Windsor will benefit the Windsor Residence for Young Men (WRYM). You can make your donation when purchasing goods at the Walker and Division store, or you can donate online at www.orangedoorproject.ca. If donating online, please be sure to select the Walker and Division store fund “Windsor-7228” in the drop-down menu so that your donation benefits WRYM. You may also leave a note regarding your donation.
Windsor Residence for Young Men (WRYM) is a charitable organization that supports young men 16 - 24 years of age as they leave homelessness behind to build new lives. WRYM provides a transitional residence and individual counselling while teaching basic life skills such as hygiene, food acquisition and preparation, budgeting, social responsibility and work ethic. For more information, please visit www.wrym.ca.
“WRYM receives less than ten percent of its funding from government sources,” says WRYM Board President Susan Freeman. “We rely on dedicated staff to assist our residents and on volunteer committees to assist with administration. As a result, our services are very cost effective. It is the generous donations of individual and corporate citizens that make this work possible.”
“We are grateful to The Home Depot for recognizing the value of this essential work,” says WRYM Executive Director Greg Goulin. “The Orange Door Campaign allows us to reach many more people than we could on our own, and as The Home Depot is covering all the administrative costs, one hundred percent of the donations go to support homeless and at-risk young men in the Windsor area.”
To support WRYM, The Home Depot store at Walker and Division roads in Windsor will sell paper orange doors for $2 at the checkout until June 24. Alternatively, customers can make an online donation at www.orangedoorproject.ca by selecting store fund “Windsor-7228”.
