St. Mary’s Parish Council (Fox Valley)

Jun 11, 2024 | Spotlight

For close to 20 years, St. Mary’s Parish Council (Fox Valley, SK) annually hosts a “Care, Share & Wear” used clothing and household item project.

All year long, people donate their gently used clothing and other items to them. This year, on April 18th, some of the school students volunteered to haul the clothing (3 truckloads this year) to their Community Hall (loaned free of charge). League members, along with local individuals, helped to organize, size, and display all of these items on the stage, floor, and 28 tables! Then they opened the doors for anyone wanting these items, for free!

The remaining items were repacked and sent to Salvation Army centres, the Nurture Pregnancy Center, and the League Clothing Depot.
