We provide heart pillows to
the Cardiac departments of the local hospitals for those having
cardiac surgery. These pillows are used by the patients after
surgery to hold when they are coughing to reduce strain on the
stitches. Our members meet in our club room to sew, stuff and
produce the necessary pillows.
We also have a group of knitters who knit cat blankets for the local Humane
Society. These are placed on the metal bottoms of the cages to protect the animals.
Each year, all
monies raised by fundraising are dispersed to various community charities.
Food and Toys
Our members are
asked to bring non-perishable food donation for the food bank to our monthly meetings; also,
food and toy donations for disadvantaged children are brought by members when they attend
our yearly Christmas luncheon.
Every effort is made to
call or visit absent members to make sure that they are fine and not in any difficult.
We plan day
trips where our members can enjoy the outing and the fellowship
of other Bell retirees, family and friends.
meetings with a tasty lunch allow retirees to visit, enjoy a
speaker, a presentation or an activity, whichever is on the agenda.
