PCI Gives Back

PCI & WINGS of Providence—Teaming Up to Help Women and Children

WINGS (Women In Need Growing Stronger) of Providence was founded by the Western Canadian chapter of the international religious community known as the Sisters of Providence. One of the original driving forces behind the emergency women’s shelter, built in 1987, was Gloria Keylor, SP, aunt to brothers Kris and Kelly Keylor of PCI.

 

PCI has been supporting the charity for many years. But it was around the time that Kris and Kelly’s mother, Alice, joined the executive team in 2001 that the brothers stepped in to provide extra assistance.

 

The building WINGS was renting from the City of Edmonton to provide housing for women and children in distress was slated to be torn down. To compensate, the City had offered to donate a piece of land to the organization. But WINGS still needed the funds to develop the land. So they reached out to business professionals and the public for donations.

 

PCI contributed approximately $30,000 to the initiative and has been donating between $5,000 and $10,000 a year ever since to help maintain operations. In 2010, ground was broken on a second building, to which PCI gave an additional $25,000. PCI also provides storage space to the shelter for donated furniture and other goods that are subsequently distributed to families in need.

 

WINGS of Providence is committed to providing comprehensive transitional programs and independent living in a safe, secure, supportive and healthy environment for women with children who have experienced family violence. Women from all over Canada benefitted from the WINGS services.
