Women's Winter Shelter-Raising

Friday, December 14th, 2018 between 12:30 – 4:30 pm @ 2003 University Way, Duncan
Please bring your own cleaning supplies (low-scented products only please).  We will need a couple of sewing machines to sew double sheets in half. Bring any clean double sheets, pillow cases, pillows and blankets that you wish to donate. Please do not bring any rugs or mats for the floors as they are considered tripping and health hazards.
There will be an opportunity to put up pictures, set up cots, clean the outside grounds and set up the kitchen and office. Bring any tools you think will be helpful (hammer, nails, rakes, gloves).
A second day to join in and help is scheduled for December 17th from 10:30am – 2:30pm to finish anything that needs completion.  Thank you to our community for the amazing support we are receiving!

Kate, that sounds great. Did you give CWAVS a call to let them know? 250-748-7000

I’m very happy this is happening. Maybe by posting comments we can avoid some duplication in donations. I picked up a new 4 slice toaster and will bring it to the Shelter Raising on Friday. I’ve also let the CWAVS know.
