Vancouver Island District Council Report    May 28, 2016

Our guest speaker was from SEVA.CA.  Seva Canada is a Vancouver based charitable organization whose mission is to restore sight and prevent blindness in the developing world.  This was an excellent presentation and well worth donating money to.

Hand Bags of Hope.  These are handbags that will be filled with articles for women in transition.  We hope to fill them with love parcels, ladies supplies, emery boards, nail polish, things that can be used to help with job interviews and everyday life.  If anyone wishes to donate, please bring handbags, toiletries and other items to our July or September 2016 union meeting.

There is a Library Health & Safety Report on the CUPE BC website. This is well worth reading the PDF online.
