FTP’s Wrapped in Courage campaign successful

February 4, 2016   ·   0 Comments

In November, Family Transition Place (FTP) launched Woman Abuse Prevention Month which included various activities to raise awareness about ending violence against women. Part of the campaign included the Wrapped in Courage purple scarf campaign where the community was invited to participate by purchasing, wearing and telling others about their “Wrapped in Courage” purple scarf that was available for purchase at Scotiabank (First Street, Orangeville) and Scotiabank Bolton (Queen Street).

“We are delighted that Scotiabank on First Street cheerfully matched all scarf sales in the month of November, and today presented Stacey Tarrant, Manager of Development & Community Relations, with a cheque for $4,235,” FTP said in a release Tuesday. “All money raised will support community education initiatives to break the cycle of violence.”

Family Transition Place (FTP) provides a continuum of services to help women and children escape violence and unhealthy relationships and to help them rebuild their lives. Inside our doors, we offer a warm and welcoming place where their safety and well-being is the most important thing in the world.

Whether it’s a safe place to live, or the services of a professional, skilled counselor to assist them on their journey, FTP is there to help.

FTP relies on community support through donations and sponsorships to ensure its programs maintain their high standard of excellence, and that our Youth Education programs continue to be available to the youth and communities of Caledon and Dufferin.
