A motion was made and carried to donate money to Skool-Aid; a non-denominational program that helps low-income families in the Trail area offset costs for school supplies. Elizabeth Stephens presented the donation to Louise McEwan, organizer for Skool-Aid. (See photo on Page 8)

In 2020, the CWL will be turning 100-years old. The National CWL Centenary Committee begun the HUG (Helping, Understanding, Giving) 2019 service project. To commemorate this, they set a goal to collect 2,019 packages. This project asks that members across Canada donate personal toiletry items and clothing to local women’s shelters in their communities. The Holy Trinity CWL members have been collecting items for this project and 26 packages have been made up and will be delivered to Trail WINS

Our next meeting will be Tuesday, September 3rd. New members are welcome. For further information, please contact Sandra Stajduhar at 250-364-2939.
