Rockin’ For A Reason 5.0 March 18th, 2019

Rockin’ for a Reason was a huge success thanks to all of the incredible sponsors, guests, and volunteers who worked so hard to make this night happen! Thank you to everyone who showed such generosity and support of Today House and Steinbach Community Outreach!

The sound of rock music shook the walls of the Neufeld Garage in Randolph this past Sunday at the fifth annual Rockin’ for a Reason fundraiser.

This year’s event saw a grand total of $17,305 raised for Today House and Steinbach Community Outreach. Both local charities say they were blown away by the outpouring of local support.

“I feel ecstatic,” remarks Outreach Drop-in Centre Coordinator Myra Gerbrandt. “I feel like there is so much support from our community. We had a full house, the music was fantastic, the food was great, and we are super, super happy!”

Those in attendance could eat at the taco and dessert bar.

Today House Chair Simone Penner is of a similar mind: “It’s amazing that our community believes in us and know that there’s a need to help. This is beyond what we could have ever hoped for.”

A local band called Crossfire provided the evening’s entertainment with a medley of high energy rock and blues. In between their music sets, presentations were given by Gerbrandt and Today House parent Dave Rushforth….https://steinbachonline.com/local/another-rockin-success-for-outreach-and-today-house

Growing Woman’s Health Campaign February 26th, 2019

Today House continues to receive tremendous support from the local Shoppers Drug Mart, long time supporters of the shelter.

Each year Steinbach Shoppers Drug Mart  does fundraising  through  the Growing Woman’s Health Campaign. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=60&v=kgTrtQwCOUQ. A fundraiser designed to help woman in the community live their most healthy life. At Today house we see many woman come through the shelter doors in need of supports, housing, clothing, toiletries, a  chance at a new start. With the hard work of the management, staff, and  customers, Today House was the recipient of an incredible $4,380.00 donation through this campaign. In addition to this incredible gift, the Shoppers Drug Mart management and staff did  their own fundraising and have provided us with $300.00 in gift cards to share with Today house guests! Guests of the shelter are able to take these gifts and shop for food, toiletries,feminine hygiene products , and more.

Our gratitude is beyond measure to this very giving community for walking along side Today House to help those with the greatest need in our community.
