Karen Watmough, Program Lead - Yew Transition House & Thyme Second Stage, and the others from Sunshine Coast Community Services were extremely happy to again receive the filled toolboxes from CFUW-SC in celebration of International Women’s Day, March 10, 2023. In the photo are Unni Claridge (L), CFUW-SC, Karen and Diane Melody (R), CFUW-SC.
In the photo you will notice the blue bag hanging from each tool box; they contain some of the items that there wasn't room for in the tool boxes. Thank you to our generous members; Dave Lamb and his staff at Gibsons Home Hardware, and Julie Reeves of Gibsons Building Supply for their support.
Thank you for your support!
Congratulations to club members, our supporters and donors.
In 2023 the Bursary Society CFUW SC awarded $12,250. to 11 local women. Congratulations to our recipients, well done!
