Crescent Valley Resource Centre and Hestia House
The Saint John Club of CFUW has for many years made it a Christmas tradition to donate to both the Crescent Valley Resource Centre (CVRC) and Hestia House. They have presented them with hats, mitts, scarfs, pajamas, socks, personal hygiene products as well as several monetary donations.
Crescent Valley Resource Centre is located in one of Saint John’s highest priority neighbourhoods. In Crescent Valley the poverty rate is over 67% and more that 50% of the households are headed by single mothers. Hestia House is a shelter that offers a secure setting for abused women and children.
Some of the donations are pictured below with CFUW SJ members.
