Thank you and looking for more help

Thank you to those who were so generous with last week's requests. We are good for laundry detergent and dishwasher tabs. This week, we're looking for:

  • large freezer bags (that help keep our wigs tidy and clean)
  • facial tissues
  • paper towels

If you can help, please feel free to bring it to our front desk volunteer. If you have any questions, please call Linda at 519-742-1544 ext 103.

"Ray-ki" is an ancient healing technique. It is a treatment in which healing energy is channeled from the practitioner to the patient who is sitting or lying quietly to enhance energy and reduce stress, pain and fatigue. Reiki is a simple procedure, consisting of calm and concentrated touching, with the practitioner focusing on healing and giving energy to specific areas on the receiver's body.
Therapeutic touch is a healing technique designed to help restore the body's natural and healthy flow of energy. The treatment delivered by a certified volunteer practitioner provides a relaxing experience and improved sense of well-being. Appointments are 45 minutes in length.
