Valentine’s Day Cards for Women's Shelters

Drop the cards at Pembina Hair at 669 Pembina Highway by February 1, 7 pm, or arrange with us another way to get them to us.  We'll send them out for you or you can choose a shelter you want to support, let us know and send the cards there yourself.
We're accepting cash donations to purchase supplies and pay for postage.

The last two years we've made valentines for shelters and sent our love to people who might need a little extra on Feb. 14. Last year the cards were sent to women's shelters across Canada in time for Valentine's Day. This year we're hoping to send out even more.
