Stratford Basketeers
The Basketeer program enriches the lives of women and children living in the shelter system.  Since 2006, the Stratford Basketeer program has been distributing 'baskets of love' filled with household items to the Emily Murphy Centre, Huron Women's Shelter and Optimism Place.  

Instead of asking donors to shop and make a basket, they are asking individuals and groups to consider making financial donations and to let them take care of the rest!

With your generous contribution they will purchase gift cards, assemble them as gift bundles, wrap them beautifully, and donate them to the shelters.

They will be purchasing gift cards to the following Canadian retailers:
• Canadian Tire
• Walmart Canada
• President’s Choice Grocery (Independent, Loblaws, No Frills, etc.)
• Ultimate Dining Card
