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!
COVID-19 has changed our plans for fundraising this Spring and Summer, as everyone knows. Our Spring Market for Africa has unfortunately been cancelled.
However, the needs of the Grandmothers in Africa remain, and are certainly exacerbated by this pandemic, so behind the scenes our committed and determined members are thinking and planning for better days. Follow us here for future opportunities, such as a plant sale, individual crafters' sales, garage sales and more.
And the hope is that our Fall Market for Africa will go ahead on Saturday, November 7, as scheduled.
Stay tuned, stay in touch, stay safe and healthy all.
