Welcome to CHW Vancouver
CHW Vancouver President, Stephanie Rusen
Winter has come early bringing snow and very cold air. But it has not dampened our spirits as we continue supporting our projects in Israel and activities here at home.
Hanukkah Donut Party
On a cold December 14th evening, we gathered at Toby Rubin’s beautiful home in Richmond to have fun. There were 9 of us from ages 20 to 93, all equal to the decorating task. With the help of wine and much laughter, very fancy donuts were produced. We ate a few, took some home, and then donated the rest to the Pre-School at the JCC. It was a delightful surprise the next morning! Many thanks to all who attended for spreading the happiness.
Welcome Back, Claudia
On Wednesday, January 11th we will formally welcome Claudia back from her position as CHW National President. It was a very busy two years, and Claudia will give us her perspective on her time in office and our projects in Israel, including the remarkable transformation of Dormitory Hey.
Please be sure to email or call Mandy at the office to reserve your spot for this exciting, informative event. Let Mandy know if you want us to arrange a ride for you.
CHW’s 100TH Birthday
We have begun the celebrations of CHW’s 100th Birthday. The changes and advances in the world over the past 100 years are astonishing, and the women of CHW have continued for 100 years steadfastly raising funds for our projects, meeting the needs of children, women and families. When you see the faces of the people we help, you know we are making a difference.
Celebrations will be happening all year culminating with the fabulous trip to Israel! Stay tuned for further announcements and start thinking about booking your trip now!
Donations for Women in Vancouver
CHW Vancouver, together with Jewish Family Services continues to donate beauty products for women at the Jewish women’s shelter in Vancouver. Please continue to collect new beauty items, either regular or sample sizes, and bring them to the office. The women we help appreciate your generosity.
Want an easier way to donate? Join the Circle of Chai for as little as $18 a month!
Mandy will be delighted to help you set this up.
