Gifts in Action
Calgary Herald Christmas Fund
We are very pleased to share that the Calgary Sexual Assault Response Team (CSART) was chosen as one of fourteen charities that will benefit from the Calgary Herald’s annual Christmas fundraising campaign. The campaign was launched today in the paper, and online. The funds raised through the Calgary Herald’s Christmas Fund Campaign will be used to support the “Third Option” program and to increase access to the “Third Option” for clients who have been sexually assaulted and reside in rural areas of Calgary Zone.
