For our 2017 London Emerging Artist Project we paired up for a 2nd year with

A portion of the proceeds from this production was donated directly to
The London Abused Women's Shelter in #ShinetheLight on Women's Abuse campaign.

Halloween for Hunger -  Niagara

2013

Squirrel Suit Productions teamed up with Free the Children on Halloween to help

feed families in their community! 

Before all the parties and costume contests this year, volunteers joined 

the kids in trick or treating from door to door...

But!

Instead of receiving candy, collected canned food items and donated it to a local shelter.
