1JustCity: Your Donations Double This December

EVERY DOLLAR YOU GIVE HELPS CHANGE A LIFE, AND EVERY DOLLAR YOU GIVE DURING THE MONTH OF DECEMBER IS DOUBLED!

Your continued generosity towards 1JustCity and Just a Warm Sleep has saved the lives of countless Winnipeggers.

Now, we want to take the next step in completing a $2M renovation that will upgrade our Just a Warm Sleep space we share with Oak Table.

Unfortunately, the arrival of COVID-19 in Manitoba delayed construction and raised costs. However, it gave us the opportunity to make life-saving changes to our plans so 1JustCity is always at the forefront of reducing illness amongst our already vulnerable population.

Your support of the renovation gives Becky a chance to shower when the guards wake her up early so she can get to her job.
Your support of the renovation gives Ahmed a chance to do his laundry, so he doesn’t get a preventable infection from lice or bed bug bites.
Your support of the renovation gives Maggie the dignity of a private washroom to do her business thanks to a dignity washroom with extended hours of use in our community. 

When you fundraise for Just a Warm Sleep, you’re helping us provide:

  • Touchless faucets and toilets in a washroom with walls that are easy to spray down;
  • washing and drying machines;
  • an upgraded air circulation system;
  • built-in hand sanitizing stations;
  • a cell phone charging and disinfecting station;
  • and industrial cleaning equipment, which will allow us to steam clean rather than use harsh chemicals.

The Sturgeon Creek Foundation has graciously supported our project by donating $20,000. When they heard we’d be short due to new COVID-19 costs, they said they’d match YOUR gifts for the months of December up to an additional $10,000.

Because of the Sturgeon Creek Foundation, your gifts double this December. Your generosity builds a new forever home for Just a Warm Sleep and Oak Table that’ll be the safest it can for those who desperately need it.

Thanks to you, Just a Warm Sleep has given thousands of safe, restful nights to Winnipeggers in need. With your help, we want to add a thousand more dignified moments for our guests, like laundry services, showers, and washrooms.

DONATE NOW WITH DOUBLE IMPACT.

Your donations mean everything to the people who need them, and we can’t thank you enough for your endless support.

Sincerely,
The 1JustCity Team
