Every year the Holy Spirit Parish C.W.L. sponsors an agency in our community who needs our support to help those less fortunate than ourselves. This year we have chosen the Elizabeth Fry Society. This organization offers services and programs to women in need, by offering a 25 safe bed residence and halfway house for women over the age of 18. Women who are homeless, fleeing abusive situations, released from mental health facilities or correctional facilities are welcomed here. Through your generosity we are hoping to fill at least 25 bags with NEW personal items such as such as socks, slippers, pyjamas, underwear, body wash, shampoo, soap, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, lip balm, toothpaste and toothbrushes, and razors . There will be a box in the Church foyer for two weekends Feb. 25/26 and March 4/5. Please put your donation in the bin.We will then make up the gift bags to be distributed by the staff, to the clients of the Elizabeth Fry Society.
Thank-you for showing these women you care about their todays and believe in their tomorrows.
