Essentials Drive for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation

Posted by Chad Morgan on Monday, November 23rd, 2020 at 9:25am.

The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is the largest public foundation in Canada dedicated exclusively to supporting women’s shelters and violence prevention programs. Collectively as Royal LePagers we have raised over $33 million to date. At Royal LePage Solutions, we are unwavering in our commitment to support our local community; it’s one of our core values.  We strongly believe that we have a responsibility to help our community so we take action to serve the greater good. 

2020 has been especially challenging for fundraising initiatives and the need is great, therefore we must remain steadfast in our mission to make a difference. Starting November 15 until December 15, Royal LePage Solutions will be collecting essentials as well as financial contributions to be donated to the Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter and Rowan House Society.  

A list of essentials which the Shelter is in need of can be found at this bottom of this page. Donations can be dropped off (contactless) at our South and North Calgary and Okotoks office locations between the hours of 9am and 4:30pm.  Please do not hesitate to contact us at (403) 252-5900 or should you require any further information.


Thank you!
