"At Union Gas we feel strongly about working with our neighbours to make great communities even better," said Chris Doig, utility services and construction manager, Union Gas. "We're proud to support the good work that Three Oaks does for this community."

Three Oaks provides shelter and services for abused women and their children. Services are available in Belleville, Quinte West, Hastings County and Prince Edward County. Last year alone, Three Oaks provided safe shelter to 174 women and 64 children. Half way through this fiscal year, they have almost exceeded those numbers. At Three Oaks Second Stage housing, in just over two years, they have provided short term housing for 31 women, many with children.

"Fundraising and donations are an ongoing necessity for Three Oaks," Sandy Watson-Moyles, executive director, Three Oaks. "Because of the ongoing generosity of community minded people like those at Union Gas, we are able to meet much of our fundraising and donation requirements each year thereby being able to meet the needs of the women and their children who have found it necessary to flee their homes and seek safe shelter at Three Oaks. Thank you."
