Every year, the Global & Community Action Committee puts up a Christmas tree and it is decorated in a theme appropriate for Advent. This year, it is the Tree of Love. How do you express love for your family, friends, community and the world?
Funds received during Advent for the Advent Tree project are divided into three and are donated to different projects. This year, the projects are as follows:
International: The Trans-Himalayan Aid Society, which provides support and housing for abused women and children in Northern India, Tibet and Nepal.
National: The “Support Indigenous Language Learning” from the Gifts with Vision Mission & Service catalogue, which will provide language lessons in Bella Bella, Gitsegulka and Haida Gwaii.
Local: the Elizabeth Fry Society Starter kits, which provides women in the E-Fry supported housing program with a basic supply of bedding, linens, kitchenware and cleaning supplies when they move into more independent housing.
Thank you for your support for these very worthwhile causes, which are just a few of the examples of Love in Action in our world!
