Supporting Women in Need (WIN) at our Christmas Luncheon
Every year at our Christmas Luncheon CFUW-Victoria donates to an organization supporting women in our community. This year we have chosen the Women in Need Community Cooperative (WIN). WIN is a non-profit organization which creates opportunities for women through support, programs and services for women and their families in times of change and transition.
We have chosen to make monetary contributions on Dec. 6 to the WIN Self Sufficiency Program. The Self Sufficiency Program complements CFUW's goals of helping women achieve career goals and financial independence. This bursary will:
- support women in pursuing further education or training
- provide funding to women to develop a small business or cooperative enterprise
- assist women to access childcare programs
A representative from WIN will join us at the luncheon to provide any additional information about the organization. Look for her at a display table in the lobby. In the dining hall each table will be provided with an envelope to collect donations (cash, or cheque made out to WIN). We hope you will give generously to this worthy cause. Tax receipts will not be issued, as WIN chooses to stay non-profit in order to have more freedom in how it supports women in our community. Thank you for your support of this excellent program.
