Women’s Committee

December 9, 2019

Last week, on #GivingTuesday, members of our Women’s Committee and local lodge members packed up shoeboxes for The Halifax Shoebox Project‘s annual drive.

The lodge made a cash donation to help purchase supplies and items, and members also made donations of items and helped pack up the boxes today during our lunch break! All told, we filled 21 boxes this year!

Thanks to all who participated!

On August 23, 2018, members of IAMAW Local 2797’s Women’s Committee were at Feed NS volunteering during their lunch hour. “It’s our 1st event and we are so happy to be able to support an organization like Feed NS that provides such a vital service to 41,000 Nova Scotians each year. Thank you to all our Lodge members who have contributed their time, money, and/or food today and we look forward to holding more volunteering events like this in the future,” says Sarah Covey, Chair of the Committee. The Lodge donated 7kg of food and $266.50.

Job well done! The committee repacked two large bins of turnips and one of carrots into the boxes you see on the pallets.
