No one deserves to be left out in the cold!
In response to this, there is a collection drive taking place!

October 22 – November 22
The Bear Clan is looking for items to help people keep warm and keep their energy up:
- Socks, mitts, sweaters, jackets, blankets, boots: new or gently used.
- Individually wrapped non-perishable food items like granola bars, crackers, cookies. (Anything that can be easily handed out while out on patrol walks)
- Also needed are personal care items like toothpaste, toothbrushes and feminine hygiene products.
“Thank you to Deanna and Len Kernaghan, Gloria and Don Saindon, Colleen Gates, Morris and Joyce Deveson, Brian and Gordon Nazarko, and Gina Grant for all their help with the set up and taking down of tables and cleaning up after the sale. Many thanks to the CICC members who made the muffins to be sold.
This event could not have been successful without all your help. Thanks to the many parishioners that came and supported this event. The craft sale made $635 for the church with 8 tables being pre-sold for next year.”
