Ad­mi­ral CWL do­nate to lo­cal Women’s Shel­ter

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Admiral - CON­TRIB­UTED BY AD­MI­RAL CWL

The Ad­mi­ral Catholic Women's League is a very small group of 11 women who feel the need in help­ing women and chil­dren seek refuge in shel­ters.

Fam­ily Vi­o­lence Pre­ven­tion Week was in Novem­ber and the hol­i­day sea­son is now upon us. We saw the need to help out and we em­braced with faith, know­ing that it would make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence this Christ­mas. At our Novem­ber meet­ing, we de­cided to get busy and start pre­par­ing pack­ages of per­sonal needs such as tooth­paste, tooth­brushes, Kleenex, brushes, combs, sham­poo, ra­zors (dis­pos­able), etc. Among other items were blan­kets, tow­els, face cloths, pa­ja­mas, slip­pers, un­der­wear, socks, books, and we didn't for­get the chil­dren. We pack­aged cloth­ing, teddy bears, games, colour­ing books, and crayons, as well as some toys which we planned to de­liver to the shel­ter be­fore Christ­mas.

No, we didn't just stop there. Cash is also very wel­comed at Christ­mas time, so we went ahead and put on a Tur­key Bingo and bake sale at the Ad­mi­ral Com­mu­nity Hall. We raised $510.06 of which ev­ery penny of that will be do­nated to the shel­ter when we de­liver our pack­ages be­fore Christ­mas. We felt that the need was there. Bless­ings and peace be with you all.
