Operation Welcome to Canada

Operation Welcome to Canada is an initiative founded by Kaitlyn, a student at Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools to help welcome newcomers into the community. As part of greeting these families, each child received a shoebox, which contained items according to their age.

Interested in participating 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 St. Joseph High School. We will be accepting donations from March 15 - May 15, 2018.

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 newcomers arriving in Red Deer and area.
