On Sunday May 28th several members gathered to sew drawstring bags for Days for Girls www.daysforgirls.org/canada-chapters-and-teams
Days for Girls is committed to supporting a girl throughout her entire lifecycle, from providing her with a DfG Kit, to teaching her health education, to offering training for her when she grows older, so that she can produce DfG Kits and support hygiene needs in her community.
We are so proud that Mandie Marques was voted Soroptimist International of Grand Erie’s Soroptimist of the Year. She does such an awesome job as our fundraising chair. Congratulations Mandie!
