For 2020, Threads of Change is included in our Giving from Home initiative.
We can't collect donations the way we usually would right now, but there is still a need within the community. You can give from home by playing Donation Bingo which allows us to continue our support of the disadvantaged and vulnerable in our communities, whilst maintaining the health of everyone.
