On Saturday, Joan from 'Sew Creative' and I were vending at a quilt show in Strathroy. After we packed up and since we were at the same place at the same time, we decided to go to the Women's Rural Resource Centre in Strathroy.
Through the New Year Party we collected $5 as a donation from the party goers. Since we had over 110 people we collected $570 in cash (there were some additional donations).
We rang the buzzer and, after a few minutes, a young woman working at the Centre opened the door. We handed her the envelope and told how we collected the donations. She seemed surprised and grateful. When we said we thought they may have use of it she replied, "You should see our food bank."
So those who attended the party have made a difference for some women and children. We can be thankful when we have food for our table and know we have nourished others.
