In an effort to help welcome the Syrian refugee families, Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools, along with the City of Red Deer is urging city residents to participate in Operation Welcome to Canada.
You can contribute by donating money (please make a cheque out to Operation Welcome to Canada deposited in account 12942710 at Servus Credit Union), items or putting together shoeboxes and dropping them off at a Red Deer Catholic Regional School or Division office. For a list of schools, visit www.rdcrs.ca/schools/our-schools. As followers of God we are called to help others and put others before ourselves. This is one way we can come together as a community to help Syrian refugees arriving in Red Deer.
If you are interested in helping out with “Operation Welcome to Canada” please contact Kaitlyn at firstname.lastname@example.org
