New donations are rolling in to the Timmins and Area Women in Crisis Center. Two were received last week, one from Gold Corp and OPG for their third annual Holiday Wish Campaign. The Holiday Wish sponsors families with low income at Christmas time.

Executive Director, Julie DeMarchi says the campaign is to sponsor entire families at Christmas time.

The second donation came from Spruce Needles, donating proceeds from their annual Ladies Golf Tournament. Those proceeds go towards HER place, which is another women’s and children shelter in Timmins.
