Cenovus donates hygiene items and $4,000 to Safe Haven Shelter and Resource Center

Cenovus donates to Safe Haven ahead of the holidays

Cenovus dropped off some much needed hygiene items and a $4000 check to Safe Haven on Tuesday.

Christmas came early at Safe Haven Shelter and Resource Center in Duluth.

Cenovus employees dropped off a large donation of hygiene items, along with a $4000 check on Tuesday.

This donation drive was spearheaded by the Women@Cenovus group.

Kate Van Daele, from Cenovus, said, “One of our values is to make it better. So this aligns with our values. We even had contractors participate.”

Safe Haven leaders said it couldn’t come at a better time, since they are in need of hygiene items.

Heather Drees, Resource Center Manager at Safe Haven, told us, “The holidays can be really tough for survivors in our community who have left, are working on leaving or have to leave because of a domestic violence situation. But when you pick up and leave with nothing, just to be have some basic needs is really important.”
