WEST END CRAWLERS
MAY 2013 NEWSLETTER
THE MONTH OF MAY STARTED OFF PRETTY GOOD!  ON THE 6TH I MET WITH JENNIFER CLINE AT THE WELL-COME CENTRE FOR HUMAN POTENTIAL.   SHE TOOK ME ON A TOUR THROUGH THEIR FACILITY, AND OPENED MY EYES TO SO MUCH NEED IN THE WEST END.   THERE ARE TYPICALLY ABOUT 138 WOMEN WHO ACCESS THEIR SERVICES EVERY MONTH, AND ATTACH APPROXIMATELY 435 CHILDREN TO THAT NUMBER.    IT’S JUST OVERWHELMING TO ME, HOW MUCH NEED THERE IS IN OUR COMMUNITY!  MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THEM CAN BE FOUND ON THEIR WEB SITE:  http://www.well-comecentre.com  WEST END CRAWLERS IS DEDICATED TO COLLECTING ANYTHING WE CAN TO HELP THESE WOMEN AND THEIR CHILDREN!  THEY ALSO OFFERED SPACE TO SORT CANNED GOODS COLLECTED FROM A FUTURE “STUFF THE TRUCK” CAMPAIGN!  
 
WE HAVE A NEW ADMIN FOR OUR GROUP!  HER NAME IS LEE, AND SHE IS INTERESTED IN HELPING OUT AT EVENTS, AND HELPED DISTRIBUTE POSTERS FOR OUR YARD SALE THAT WAS HELD ON THE 25TH OF THE MONTH.  

A CO-WORKER OF MINE CAME UP WITH AN IDEA OF “CARE BASKETS”.  SHE’LL MAKE ABOUT FIVE PER WEEK FILLING WITH VARIOUS PERSONAL/HYGIENE ITEMS.  SHE WANTS TO DONATE THEM TO THE WELL-COME CENTRE!  IF YOU’D LIKE TO DO THE SAME, WE’D BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO COLLECT AND DELIVER THEM FOR YOU, OR CONTACT THE CENTRE FOR AVAILABLE TIMES TO DROP THEM OFF YOURSELF. 

MAY 15TH, WE PICKED UP A TOTE BAG FULL OF FOOD THAT WAS DROPPED OFF FOR US AT FACES WINDSOR, TO DISTRIBUTE TO FOOD BANKS!  NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW WHO THE DONOR WAS, BUT “THANK YOU!!” WHOEVER YOU ARE!  

AS STATED EARLIER, WE HAD OUR FIRST ANNUAL CHARITY YARD SALE ON MAY 25TH.  TOTAL CASH RAISED:  $281.92!!  

SO THAT WAS THE MONTH OF MAY!  THANKS FOR READING!
