“Buy a Brick” this Christmas in support of APCH

By Lindsay Advocate

A Place Called Home's "Buy a Brick" campaign offers a unique opportunity to memorialize supporters' donations on the wall of its new shelter.

Looking for a truly special gift this holiday season? Want to memorialize a loved one in a way that directly impacts the lives of those struggling in our community? Residents can do so through A Place Called Home’s “Buy a Brick” campaign, which is back by popular demand.

APCH is offering the unique opportunity to memorialize supporters’ donations forever on the wall of its new shelter. Bricks are on sale now for $250.00 and donors will receive a $200.00 tax receipt with their purchase. Anticipated installation date will be late spring of 2024.

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to support APCH increased operational costs since moving into our new larger purpose-built shelter.

A Place Called Home provides emergency shelter, outreach services, and around-the-clock supports to hundreds of men, women, families, seniors, and youth in the City of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County. Our shelter program provides a safe place to call home, three meals a day, and effective supports to help those experiencing homelessness to get back on their feet and back into the community. The outreach program serves those at risk of homelessness with hot meals and access to shower and laundry facilities. Its qualified staff work closely with those at risk of homelessness to overcome the barriers that are putting them at risk of losing their housing through effective referrals, advocacy, and compassion.
