A special thanks to Eliasz and Ella Jewelry & Accessories and 3Leaf Wellness Centre for collecting close to 9,000  diapers and 60 cans of baby formula to BIssell Centre for families in poverty through their Fill the Crib fundraiser.

For three weeks, they promoted the fundraiser by asking the public to donate diapers or formula with the opportunity to receive jewellery for every box that contained 100+ diapers or a sauna card for every can of formula that was 600g or  more. People were also entered into a final draw with giveaways from local businesses.

The response was overwhelming and the generous support from the fundraiser will immediately  help families living in poverty who struggle to afford diapers and formula for their children and who rely on our Child & Family Services Program for help.

We are grateful for their efforts and very thankful for our partnership!
