For the first time in years, Mary’s children were coming home for the holidays. But Mary was anxious. On a fixed income, after buying food for her family’s visit, she couldn’t pay her utility bills and her hydro was going to be disconnected just before her family arrived. With the help of CCRC’s Housing Resource Centre, Mary was able to keep her power on. Mary’s family was able to have dinner and celebrate being together again. There are hundreds of people in the City and County of #ptbo who are at risk of losing their hydro, their housing, their dignity. With your help we can do something about it today. People like Mary need you. Please make the most generous gift you can today to help us help #turn thingsaround for as many people as possible. Give Today: Photo Copyright Piotr Marcinski|
