Building Up Homelessness with YWCA Niagara & GIANT FM

Cardboard House 2019 seaway Mall




Seaway Mall, in partnership with Country89 and GiantFM, is introducing an exciting new initiative in support of the YWCA Niagara Region (YW). The YW is the largest provider of emergency shelter in the region, providing support to women, men, and families in need. The YW is very excited to have the support of Seaway Mall, Country 89 and Giant FM in this exciting new opportunity. We are reaching out in hopes that you will get involved!


Throughout the month of June, people can “buy a brick” at Customer Service and online for $2 a brick. The paper bricks will be collected to cover the Cardboard House, which will be on display in Centre Court from June 21 to June 29. The Cardboard House is an interactive display that tours visitors through the many misconceptions, realities, and solutions to homelessness in Niagara. Accompanying the display of the house will be fun events and giveaways throughout the week. By the end of the month, we hope that the entire house will be covered in bricks.


Corporations like yours can get involved by purchasing an entire pallet of bricks, rather than just one brick at a time. By making a donation of $100 to the YWCA Niagara Region, in-person at the mall or online, an entire band of bricks will be placed around the Cardboard House displaying your company’s name. Your logo will be seen by visitors at the mall, providing you with community recognition for supporting an important, local cause.

A donation of $100 will help the YW provide shelter and food to a family at our family shelter for about a week. Donations can be made throughout the entire month of June. All $100 donations will receive a tax receipt. Thank you so much for your consideration. Please be in touch should you need any further information.
