Donation of Tool Boxes in Celebration of International Women’s Day 2022
L to R: Claire Warszycki (CFUW-SC), Carol Wainwright, Manager, Together Against Violence, Unni Claridge (CFUW-SC), and Carol Steedman (CFUW-SC)
Thanks to the very generous monetary donations by CFUW-SC members - and also a generous discount from Dave Lamb, Manager of Gibsons Home Hardware, CFUW-SC was able to purchase three toolboxes and fill them with tools and supplies. These toolboxes are to support families of the Sunshine Coast Community Services Thyme Second Stage House program as they start their new life journeys.
"Thank you for donating these toolboxes, they are such a practical and thoughtful gift that arrive at a time just when they are so desperately needed." Carol Wainwright
