Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday has grown in popularity the past few years as a day where charities hold events and/or create giving campaigns to raise funds.

Joni Wright, executive director of Little House, said this is the first time the organization has participated in the Giving Tuesday initiative.

“We thought it would allow us to raise our profile and take advantage of any fundraising opportunity that we can,” said Wright. “We’re having an open house because still after all these years, there are so many in the community who have no idea what Little House does, or who we are.”

The open house will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Residents will have a chance to tour the facility, learn about the programs and also sign up for a membership, which is $20 a year.

Little House Society is a non-profit organization located at 5061-12th Ave. in Tsawwassen.

For more than 30 years, Little House has been a place of support and hope for those touched by substance use disorder. Little House provides a safe place for group recovery meetings, individual counselling, group therapy and workshops.
