Call for Donations and HELP
As some of you may know, in August of this year I met two amazing girls from the Ukraine who had just arrived in Canada. With the help of some amazing people (special thank you to the Rutherford’s amongst others!!) we were able to raise enough funds to buy them new beds and bedding and fully furnish their apartment.
Well, we did such a great job, I thought we could pull together one more time. Yegor arrived here last week. He has two girls- 2.5 and 4.5 years old and a wife who are just waiting for their visas to be approved. We hope they will be here in the next few weeks.
Once he has found an apartment, I am confident we can pull together and furnish it for them. As I did with the girls before them, I would like to try and raise enough in donations to buy them new beds, bedding, pillows and towels.
The club is asking you to take a look around your homes and see if you have anything you would like to donate to help them out- plates, dishes, pots, cutlery, cleaning supplies, mops, blankets, tables, chairs, sofas etc along with little girls clothing (especially winter clothing like ski pants, jackets, boots etc) and TOYS!
My ultimate goal is to ensure those little girls arrive in Canada to a safe and well set up room and home filled with everything they could need to adjust, and the parents can begin to rebuild without having to struggle for basic supplies and furnishings.
Cash donations will be accepted at the club, as will etransfers to firstname.lastname@example.org. Material donations can be added to the list in the club office (we will pick up if needed) and a drop off day will be set up if you can drop things off once Yegor has secured housing.
Thank you all in advance-
I am very proud of our city and our club and I know we can do this!
