The Calgary branch has been active in supporting our community. By connecting with various non-profit organizations, we help and assist in raising funds, collecting donations, and raising awareness of their unique diversity and individual purpose. We are very proud to have supported many of them, like;

Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre Fill-a-Purse Campaign

If you would like to donate any item(s), please bring them to our monthly meetings along with an unwanted purse (if you have one). Our Executive Board will deliver all the donations and purses to "The DI" in November. If you have any questions, please call Dixie Dayka 403-804-8274 or email dfdayka@shaw.ca.
