Friday, March 8th is International Women’s Day and Maurices is celebrating with a promotion to help women in need. Between March 8th and 15th, customers will receive 20% off one regular priced item when they bring in a donation for Windsor’s Hiatus House.
Hiatus House is a non-profit organization which provides assistance to women experiencing domestic violence. They provide emergency shelter to abused women and their children and help them transition into a violence-free environment through financial assistance, legal assistance, counseling and finding housing.
When women flee an abusive situation, they often do not have time to pack essential items. Many women and children arrive at shelters with not much more than the clothes on their backs. A donation of any of the following items is especially needed at this time:
- Women and children’s clothing (pajamas, track suits, slippers, robes)
- Women’s underwear in sizes small and medium
- Children’s pull-ups and diapers in sizes five and six
- Toys for all ages
- Women’s journals
- Adult and child colouring books
- Coloured pencils and crayons
- Gift cards for Wal-Mart and Tim Horton’s
