Textile / Clothing 2021 Drive

The fall 2021 drive helped people clear out just under 4000 pounds of textiles from their homes. Many thanks to everyone who helped.

Please let everyone know to clean out their closets and bring unwanted items to CORPUS CHRISTI PARISH HALL PARKING LOT  5931 – 4th Street NW (corner of Thorndale Road and 4th St NW).

If you are bringing pairs (boots, shoes, gloves, mitts, socks) tie them so they stay together.

Please make sure items are clean and dry and securely bagged.

The Linus Project

This project was supported in our parish by deceased member Dora Etty and is now convened by Sandi Doucet. Volunteers knit or sew small blankets which are then donated to MacDonald House or to the Children’s Hospital. Sandi will accept all donated wools/yarns, take them to the knitters, pick up completed blankets and deliver them.

Kindly be advised of this report informing the CWL of the balance of knitting of blankets etc. for the year 2020, and brought to McDonald House for the families with children in need of medical attention at The Childrens Hospital:

Ronald McDonald House Charities Alberta valued this contribution at $1550. The people who knit these items have received letters of thanks from the families involved. We wish to thank the volunteers for their work, and time in helping to make the lives of the recipients of these items a little easier and to bring a little joy to their children.

Respectfully Presented
Sandra Doucet
