Welcome Bags
Our welcome bags are destined for people moving off the streets of
Kelowna into supportive programs that enable them to take those
important first steps. The bags will offer basic items for personal
hygiene and care as they get settled in. They will be distributed
through New Opportunities for Women and Willowbridge
House (operated by the CMHA) and will be given out throughout
the year. The cost for a Welcome Bag is $25.00. Special donation
envelopes are available at the back of the church for your donations.
All donations are tax deductible. Thank you so much!
