Grannies à Gogo fall fundraisers are underway, and key to this year’s efforts are colourful photo calendars depicting local Vernon activities, as well as activites of the Sitabogogo (grandmother) in Sabie, South Africa.
Funds gathered directly support the grandmothers and their vulnerable families who are raising AIDS orphaned grandchildren.
“It makes possible such activities as soup kitchens, medical care access, clothing and much more to improve their quality of life,” said Lynda Kerr, publicity coordinator for Grannies à Gogo. “If you need a calendar, or would like to give one as a gift and believe in global inter-racial support efforts, they will be sold on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Trinity United Church Fall Tea.”
The calendars will also be available at the Festival of Crafts at Wesbild Centre on Nov. 18 and 19 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
“Please drop by Trinity United Church on Saturday. We’ll have our unique photo calendars and other fundraising crafts, as well as to provide information about our group’s cause and various ways to become involved.”
