Online Auction Donation Request

I am pleased to support Barrie Families Unite (BFU), a new and vital Barrie-based Not-for-Profit focused on bridging essential health and wellness gaps for low income individuals and families. BFU has been cultivating equity in our community by facilitating connection of individuals and engaging the power of community.
Since early 2020, and with the support of generous community volunteers and donors, BFU has demonstrated their core values of Integrity, Kindness, Compassion and Connection by providing:
Food Insecurity Assistance (nutrition and necessities for individuals and families beyond what is provided by the Food Bank, e.g. baby formula, diapers and emergency delivery/transportation)
Free Clothing (clothing for struggling individuals and families to provide comfort and warmth throughout all seasons, as well as safety boots and appropriate work wear for those beginning new jobs)
Situational Crisis Support (referrals to community agencies and navigation support for individuals and families dealing with trauma, e.g. fleeing abuse, transitioning from homelessness or house fire, bed bug infestation, as well as direct provision of temporary medical assistive devices and start over kits (household necessities) and volunteer-based transportation)
MARK YOUR CALENDAR!
In partnership with A TOUCH OF CLASS AUCTIONS and renowned auctioneer KRISTA RICHARDS, BFU is delighted to announce that our 1st ANNUAL BARRIE FAMILIES UNITE ONLINE AUCTION will be held APRIL 15 (12PM) TO APRIL 21 (8PM) in support of our ongoing important community assistance activities.
