We are so grateful to all the people that bring us their wonderful creations.
Volunteers from Cowichan Bay Nel and her friend Henny get together almost every Monday to work on stuff for Canada Comforts Society. Everything from bandages, to diapers, to knitted slippers and blankets. Nel is rolling bandages on this handy rolling tool that a friend made for her and Henny is doing the ripping/prepping of the material to be rolled.
So far in 2021 they have made:
– 60 dozen diapers
– 5 boxes of bandages
– 19 pairs of knitted slippers
– 36 pairs of baby booties
– 9 knitted large blankets (for a single bed)
– 3 knitted baby blankets
Way to go ladies!

The Capital City Yacht Club Sewing Group formed in 2019 to sew for Canada Comforts Society.
Prior to the onset of COVID19 social distancing mandate the group sewed 95 pairs of shorts and 50 face masks. Unfortunately, they are unable to meet as a group but Dianne Walker continues to sew shorts and has made 180 pairs on her own since last March! The group is keen to meet and sew for CCS once again when it is safe.

When we can’t get together at the Centre but are still working hard making items for the Compassionate Resource Warehouse its nice to see the ladies from Canada Comforts Society on pickup day. (Marguerite, Marlene, Freda, Betty and Irene)

September 2020 Thank you Norgarden Knitters
See all those happy ” little bear faces”? Soon they will be causing children in a different country to share those smiles- except this time- squeals will be heard along with the smiles! This was only part of the beautiful gifts that came our way.
Keep up the great work- and we will keep sharing your gifts with others!
