A HEARTFELT THANK YOU
Thank you to the anonymous donor who has graciously donated $5,000 to SEIA in response to the Wesley street fire.
This funding will support our outreach workers initiatives to provide necessary items such as waterproof blankets and sleeping bags to the homeless community during this difficult time.
Our sincere thanks goes out to this generous individual.
