ICG 669's Women's Committee's Full Purse Campaign Fills 60 Purses/Backpacks for Downtown Eastside's Women's Centre.
Big THANK YOU to everyone that donated items for the Full Purse Campaign! ICG 669's Women's Committee collected enough donations to fill 60 purses and small backpacks with toiletries, feminine hygiene products, water bottles, socks, etc. to donate to the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre (DEWC).
Everyday 300 women go through DEWC for food, toiletries, clothing, counselling, compassion and safety. ICG 669 is proud to help support this amazing non-profit organization.
This is Celin (L) and Sara (R). Celin is in charge of all donations and fundraising for DEWC, and Sara has helped manage the shelter for the past 17 years.
ICG 669 would like to Thank all those who attended the Women's Committee Gathering on June 1st who helped package all the bags together, and to those that were able to help deliver all the donations to DEWC.
