COVID-19 has of course changed our plans for fundraising during 2020.
However, the needs of the Grandmothers in Africa remain, and are certainly exacerbated by this pandemic, so behind the scenes our determined members are thinking and planning for better days. Follow us here for highlights!
We hope our Fall Market for Africa will go ahead on Saturday, November 7, as scheduled. And we are looking into setting up an On Line Store for those who want to shop from home.
Stay tuned, stay in touch, stay safe and healthy all.

Our long time member Gail has an awesome green thumb. Every year she runs a plant sale at our Spring Market for Africa. Due to this year's cancellation of the Market, Gail ran the sale from her driveway, with physical distancing precautions in place, and managed to raise $841.00! Many of the plants were nursed by her through the winter. Herbs were donated by Riley's Garden Centre. Thanks a bunch Gail!
Recently our amazing sewing members supplied 125 masks to Ininew Patient Services in Kingston. These masks were made for people from James Bay communities who must travel by plane to Kingston for medical services. Member Pat Cauldwell thanks Mary Lou Boudreaux, Dorothy Agnew and Eva Bencze for their efforts and feels honoured to belong to such an incredible group!
