It’s looking like Christmas these days at the Tri-County Women’s Centre in Yarmouth, where the fundraiser tree is up for another year.
This is an annual effort on the part of the women’s centre to help charitable causes and, like last year, the TCWC is partnering with Tabitha Centre, the Catholic Church’s local outreach program. Money raised from the fundraiser tree will help support Tabitha Centre’s charity work in the community.
Members of the public can do their part by dropping by the women’s centre at 12 Cumberland St. to make a donation and place a candy cane on the tree. They can do so Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. until Dec. 20.
They also will have a chance to do so when the women’s centre holds its annual holiday tea, which is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 5, from noon to 2 p.m.
While there for the tea, they can enjoy some gingerbread and sandwiches, along with some eggnog or punch.
Greg Moulaison, director of Tabitha Centre, says they are glad to be partnering with the Tri-County Women’s Centre again and are grateful for the support.
Tabitha Centre is a volunteer-run program that has an office in the St. Ambrose Parish Centre in Yarmouth.
Moulaison, who has been involved in Tabitha Centre for 16 years, says they try to help people any way they can.
“Increased donations have allowed us to help a greater number in the community this year than in the past,” he said.
Moulaison had said before – and he did so again on the day of the launch of this year’s holiday tree campaign – that the local area is fortunate to have organizations that care about the community and are trying to assist people.
