The Rowan House Emergency Shelter has received great response in the Foothills for their monthly donation requests.

Community Relations Coordinator for Rowan House, Ally Cramm, says they're striving to provide healthy options to their residents, while attempting to encompass their specific dietary needs.

"We believe that women and children in shelter deserve to have nutritious, healthy meals. There's also a lot of dietary needs, like lactose free or dairy free milk. Those things can be quite costly. If we have a nut free option and a dairy free option, then we have our bases covered," she said.

Cramm says they're overwhelmed with gratitude for the donations rolling in.

"We had a huge response to our September campaign. Our women and children are really enjoying that they get to have soft, silky hair, because of all the conditioner that has come in," she said.

For the month of October, Rowan House is in need of diapers and pull ups, particularly sizes 4-6, as well as almond and coconut milk in the tetra packs.

If you are interested in donating to Rowan House, you can contact them on their Faceboook page, or by calling the shelter directly at 403-652-3316.
