CWL Refugee Welcome Bags:Each year about 100 refugees are welcomed to Edmonton and given these bags.  This is an effort by Catholic Charities and St. Charles CWL for the last several years.  We are in need of different items to put in the bags, from general toiletries to crayons and coloring books for children. 

Here is a list of the items we are in need of and the current amount we have on hand.  Items can be dropped off in the Refugee Welcome Bin at the front doors of the church.  If you have any questions, please contact Patti Ofner at (780) 641-3086.
