Safetynet Children and Youth Charities was founded in Oakville by Bill Shields in 2007. Grace became involved during our Reformation Challenge in 2017 when we successfully reached our goal of collecting and donating 500 items of clothing for Safetynet.
During a visit by Ardie Archer to their new location at 1317 Speers Road in 2018, she learned that one of the greatest needs is underwear and socks for men, women and children of all ages since these need to be new items. Ardie took the opportunity during announcements at a worship service and told the members of this need. There was an immediate positive reaction. Grace members held a focused drive for socks and underwear and over a period of a month gave generously to this cause.
