CRW has had the blessing of receiving boxes and bags from

Canada Comforts up-island groups- so many of you!!!

Boxes from Penticton Church of the Nazarene

Boxes from Kelowna Church of the Nazarene

Boxes from Three HIlls Alberta

Boxes and bags from many friends here in Victoria

Vancouver Island Health- medical supplies

Vancouver Island Health Regional Laundry- hospital linen

Along with our regular donors- Sailor Jacks, WIN, Abra Kid Abra Everything, Red Rover Children

All this has helped us reach our capacity in all locations. There is no such thing as a hidey-hole anymore! All shelving is full, walls of boxes are being extended in alleyways, some of our garages are full......:)
So for right now- please store your donations in your own home- we are at capacity. We will let you know when you can start to bring in your gifts.
Please be in prayer that we can load out a container as soon as possible. Many potential loads are just waiting for a final piece of paper or approval. When this happens- get ready- we will load whenever and wherever we need to. 
So rest up and do your garden work- and then you will be ready to assist us with emptying the warehouse spaces.
Thank you again for your kindness!
