Sharing and Caring about Others

It's the time of year when we think about giving to our families and friends. It is also the time we should open our hearts beyond and help others less fortunate than ourselves.

Island Women Against Violence (IWAV) is a non-profit society dedicated to supporting women and their children throughout the Southern Gulf Islands whose lives have been affected by violence and abuse.

I would like to ask of those who are able, to donate what you can. Many women who use the shelter show up with little more than the clothes on their backs. I have spoken to one of the counsellors and they would be ever so grateful for whatever we can give. She specifically mentioned needing slippers and night wear. Any gently used or new clothing items for women, bath product & lotions, toys and clothing for children and books would be appreciated.

I will be collecting donations until the 14th of December.

Anyone wishing to donate can contact me at 250 539-3509.

Home Hardware will have a bin for donations, thank you Colleen!

Gulfport Realty office will also accept donations, thank you Dereck!

Please do not wrap anything.

In the spirit of Christmas and giving let's reach out and make someone else's just a little bit better.

For more information please contact Lorie Brown at 250 539-3509
