Scott Downey from the Cardio Pulmonary Rehab program came and spoke to our club Wednesday about heart health , exercise and things you can do to keep your heart healthy.
It was a great speech.
President Jon Milligan presents a cheque to Marni Adams and Liz Gomes of South Okanagan Women in Needs Society (SOWINS) for $5000 to continue our fresh start kit program for women fleeing abuse.
In 2019 we donated money to SOWINS (South Okanagan Women in Needs Society) to start their Fresh Start Kits
These kits are for women fleeing domestic abuse and starting again on their own.
The kits include start up things such as pots and pans, dishes, towels, bedding, cleaning supplies, utensils, and other things to help them have a fresh start.
To date our club has donated 39 kits for a value of $16694.  These kits are needed and appreciated.
