Our lights stay on
How to donate
Thank you for your interest in supporting the “Our Lights Stay On” campaign which enables us to continue to provide our helpline service during the overnight hours... every overnight of the year.
Supporting an “overnighter” shift is simple. In just four simple steps, you will help us keep our lights on.
1. Select which day (or days) of the year you want to support. Is there a particular day that is meaningful to you or perhaps in memory of a loved one?
2. Send Victoria Kehoe, our Executive Director, an email that identifies yourself (however you want your name or memorial message or company name/logo to appear on our website blog on that day). Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Make a donation to Distress Centre Durham in the amount of $50.00 for each day you wish to support. You can donate by sending a cheque to: Distress Centre Durham, 306 Brock Street North, Whitby, ON L1N 4H7
4. Click the canadahelps.org logo in the left side navigation and select “Our Lights Stay On” campaign.
You will receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation, and a thank you for supporting our ability to provide emotional support, crisis and suicide de-escalation and intervention to those in need in our community.
