At the February 2023 General Meeting a motion was passed to discontinue this fundraiser
We are not holding our Textile Drive in spring 2023
If you have been saving items, you may want to consider donating them to the St Gabriel, Chestermere Textile / Donation Drive. Please note that items donated to them will be sold to Value Village.
We have learned of a group that teaches immigrants English while teaching them sewing skills. When they graduate, they are given their own sewing machine. If you have a portable sewing machine in good working condition and would like to give it purpose in a new home, please .
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.
