Tru Earth

Tru Earth is a Canadian company that focuses on creating eco-friendly household goods that function the same as - or better  than - traditional products, but without all the plastic and other chemicals that are harmful for the planet. Tru Earth has created eco-friendly laundry strips that pack ultra-concentrated, hypoallergenic, eco-friendly cleaning power into a tiny, pre-measured strip of liquidless laundry detergent. Its low-sudsing formula works in all types of washing machines, including high-efficiency (HE).

Sewing Machines in good working condition

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 .

 

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
