SASKATOON CWL CLOTHING DEPOT
619 20th Street W.
Saskatoon, Sask.

 

Fall/Winter 2018  

  

The non-profit CWL Clothing Depot is presently seeking fall and winter donations including pots and pans, linens, towels, sheets, blankets, etc., ladies, men's and children's jackets, coats and boots, mitts and gloves and ladies long sleeved sweaters.

  

     

  

In preparation for the Clothing Depot's annual Christmas Sale, the Depot is seeking donations of “new” toys. As well, “new” gift sets which might include soaps, lotions, and perfumes are very much appreciated and make wonderful and affordable Christmas gifts for the shoppers who frequent the Depot.

  

  

    

The Depot is also requesting “gently used items,” some of which may include Christmas ornaments and
home decor giftware, Nativity sets, candles, tree lights, etc.

  

Many delicious and decorative “Christmas candy cups” are created by the volunteers and are purchased by children and adults at a minimal cost. With that said, the Clothing Depot is requesting individually wrapped candy, preferably nut free.

  

  

  

  

The Clothing Depot extends special thanks to all its supporters especially the dedicated volunteers who continue to “serve” God's people with kindness and charity. Volunteers are always welcomed and needed! Please call Bea at the Depot, 306-242-5042, if you wish to join the volunteer “team.”

  

The Depot also thanks the numerous individuals and organizations who support us with donations. Because the Depot is a non-profit organization, profits from sales are directed to local and provincial charities.

Because volunteers are always needed and greatly appreciated, please call Bea at the Clothing Depot, 306 242 5042, to inquire about volunteering.

In Bea's absence, the Depot Manager's Report was read by Pat Fortosky, Board Chairman. Bea noted that a total of 5197.5 volunteer hours were  documented for the 2017 year. She also expressed special thanks to the Christian Ethics students who help out, to the ladies who do mending, and to the lady who makes old Barbie Dolls look like new.

Spring 2018

  

The CWL Clothing Depot is pleased to report that 2017 was a very successful year. We were able to provide new as well as “gently used items,” some of which included clothing, household items, bedding, and Christmas “gift” items to the needy at prices that were affordable to them. This is made possible by support from our dedicated volunteers who spend endless hours at the CWL Clothing Depot and from many others who understand the needs in our community and continue with their donations throughout the year. The Clothing Depot in turn is able to continuously offer financial support to non-profit charitable organizations so that they too are able to carry on their good work to benefit others as well.

  

  

  

Spring is just around the corner and the beginning of the annual “spring cleaning.” Please keep the CWL Clothing Depot in mind as you “reduce clutter.” At this time the Clothing Depot is accepting towels, bedding such as sheets, blankets and comforters, men's, ladies and children's clothing of all sizes and spring footwear.

    

    

    

    

    

  

Volunteers are always needed and greatly appreciated. If you are interested in joining our team please contact us at the CWL Clothing Depot for more information.

When we, who have been so richly blessed, are willing to share our time and treasure with our brothers and sisters then we are doing what the Gospel demands of us.

   We encourage parishes and other groups to consider organizing donation drives for particular items such as socks and underwear, that are always in demand.   

   

  

The Clothing Depot has a wide variety of items from which people can chose.
