Raising Money for Typhoon Haiyan

We will be raising money for the victims that were devastated by Typhoon Haiyan in the central region of the Philippines. As many of the newcomers to southwest SK are from the Philippines, this is a cause very dear to our hearts. If you are able, please dig deep into your pockets and help us on the 19th of November.

The Newcomer Welcome Centre is in solidarity with the Filipino community in appealing to the community for help for the victims of typhoon Haiyan.  The Filipino Association and the Welcome Centre have coordinated with Canadian Red Cross for a community fund-raising on November 19, 2013 at the Newcomer Welcome Centre from 9am to 5pm. We are also coordinating with the Salvation Army for a fund-raising supper where all proceeds will go to the victims of this calamity.  The date and further details will be provided later.


We know there are other ways to donate to the victims.  We hope we will get the support of the community on Nov. 19, 2013 in this fund-raising event.
