A big thank you to Oliver Buy Low for their donation of all supplies, equipment and space for a hot dog sale to raise funds for The Women in Need Society.
In this day and age it seems terrible that so many women and children need to find shelter, clothing and other basic needs but, the sad fact is that this is a big problem in our society. Women who are abused are sometimes forced to flee their homes to find safe shelter elsewhere. The W.I.N. society fills just a small part of this need and never has enough money to do all that is necessary.
The members of the Order of the Eastern Star held a hot dog sale on Canada Day to raise funds for this very worthy cause. People of Oliver came to enjoy lunch and make their donations. Thank you to ODN for advertising our event and to all who came to support it.
Our next hot dog sale will be held outside of Super Valu on Friday, August 14th the donations from that sale will go to the Children’s Make a Wish Foundation.
Pat Whalley for Order of the Eastern Star.
