Local business donates to United Way's Huron Homelessness Initiative

United Way Perth Huron is celebrating a significant donation from a local business.

Goderich Super Storage has donated $20,000 to the Huron Homelessness Initiative.

The Huron Homelessness Initiative includes shelter for women and children, shelter supports for youth, emergency shelter during cold months, transitional housing for men and housing support.

According to the United Way, last year over 700 individuals and families were helped by the programs and services included in the Huron Homelessness Initiative.

“We view 'Business as Mission' and therefore intentionally take a portion of the profits generated from Goderich Super Storage to invest in the community where we do business,” said co-owner Doug Kuyvenhoven. “We are called to care for the least, the lost, the lonely. So following Jesus’ lead we felt compelled to give this donation to help those experiencing homelessness in Goderich.”

“We’d like to thank Goderich Super Storage for their generous donation,” added Michelle Millar, United Way’s Manager Community Development for Goderich and Area. “The community has embraced the importance of supporting vulnerable people. We appreciate great local businesses donating to our local work helping ensure important programs and services are available for people when they need them.”
