I have made arrangements for our Council to work the following date at the Marian Centre (10528 98 street Edmonton) to prepare and serve meals to the less fortunate.
Saturday, January 24, 2009.
The Marian Centre always welcomes volunteers for mid-week meal preparation and serving. If you have the free time please contact the Centre and offer your assistance. You can reach them at 424-3544.
The Centre is always in need of clothing especially warm clothing for the colder months of the year. Coats, toques, gloves, shoes, boots, sweaters and underwear are some of the essential. Check your closets for anything you are not using and can provide to this worthy organization. In addition, toiletries are much in demand. Food donations are also accepted (canned, dry foods and beverages, all inspected raw meats and fruits and vegetables). These can be taken directly to the Centre (address above) or you can call me at 434-7059.
Thank you for giving this worthy organization your consideration.
