The items we collected for the first family were well used. Any extra were passed on to the Multicultural Centre for use with other families, as we have no storage space.

We have already received a very generous donation of living room and bedroom furniture from the estate of a member of Hilldale Lutheran. We also have received a table and chairs, cutlery, dinnerware, kettle, coffee pot, microwave, and computer and monitor.

Pick-up of donations can be arranged if necessary, please call Christine Paul, 627-1912.

Thank you to everyone for your ongoing help!
