Shoes were the basis for the latest fundraiser undertaken by the Order of the Eastern Star.
For every pair of shoes owned by each member of the Grand Chapter of British Columbia and Yukon, 50 cents had to be donated to the Order’s annual special project. This year’s proceeds will support transition houses, safe homes and second stage housing.
While the Invermere Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star has been absorbed by the Golden Chapter, many of its members are still valley residents, and saw their share of donations support the Family Resource Centre in Invermere.
The chapter was able to donate $190.75 to both the Family Resource Centre in Invermere, as well as the Golden Women’s Resource Centre.
