It was out with the old for the women at the third annual Shop N Share last Thursday.

Those who attended brought clothes and other goods they no longer needed, but were still in good condition, to the home of Janet Williams – owner of Magic Homestaging.

Williams sponsored and hosted the event, which included an auction raising $1,304  with all the proceeds going to help women in need through Atira Women’s Resource Society.

Members of the society came to the event and educated attendees about the many resources it provides.

The non-profit organization, which has an office in White Rock, provides housing, advocacy, and support to any women who are victims of violence. For more about Atira, go to www.atira.bc.ca
