For years, Soroptimist International of Vancouver has committed to provide the funding to Queen Alexandra School on East Broadway for its “healthy recess snack program” for the children in Kindergarten to Grade 7. It is one of the greatest projects we have.
To support Literacy, every Christmas the club provides Book Bags that handmade by Soroptimist members to Grade 1 and Grade 2 children at Queen Alexandra. Each Book Bag contains a book and a snuggly reading buddy. The children have been thrilled to receive a book they can keep for their very own.
Last Christmas (December 2013), Soroptimist International of Vancouver had made and delivered 80 Kiddy Bags (every Book Bag contains a book and a stuffed toy + a pair of gloves + a toothbrush) to children at Queen Alexandra. In addition, Ms. Pat McKenzie, on behalf of Soroptimist International of Vancouver, had handed a cheque of $2,500 to the staff at Queen Alexandra School.
Proud to be a Soroptimist!
