KSAC Hopes Tea Cups Overflow for United Way

Buy fine china gifts Dec. 5, support efforts to reduce poverty, homelessness

The Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre (KSAC) is bringing out the fine china in support of the United Way of Peterborough & District’s annual campaign.

KSAC is selling its significant collection of china tea cups filled with succulent plants, needle-felted plants, candles, bird feeders and teacher gifts.

“We have very creative student interns who designed this fun, upcycling fundraiser to support the United Way.”

Organizers of the “Community Grows” fundraiser ask community members to consider dropping by The Cork and Bean café in downtown Peterborough on Dec. 5 from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. to shop the collection of unique gifts.

All proceeds support the United Way of Peterborough & District’s campaign to benefit community and social services, with a focus on housing and poverty.

“We are excited to share our collection of china tea cups as we look forward from our annual high tea event to new initiatives,” says Lisa Clarke, executive director of KSAC.

“We have very creative student interns who designed this fun, upcycling fundraiser to support the United Way.”

KSAC says it’s grateful for its sponsors, East City Flower Shop and Plant Goals, for supplying the succulents.

“Come to downtown Peterborough, enjoy free holiday two-hour parking, and pick up some cute and useful holiday gifts that make a difference,” Lisa says.

The United Way of Peterborough & District contributes $36,000 per year to KSAC in support of services including counselling for male survivors of sexual abuse and counselling group programs.

KSAC is a not-for-profit charitable organization dedicated to supporting those affected by sexual violence.

At its centre in Peterborough, KSAC offers individual trauma counselling, group counselling and workshops, peer supports, public education and professional training.

In the three surrounding communities of City of Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton and Northumberland, KSAC works with local centres to provide responsive healing supports and public education events.
