We lost Heidi, treasured board member and friend, in a tragic automobile accident on Friday, December 11. For those members who asked to whom to send flowers or donations for Heidi, her family requested that in lieu of flowers a donation to support one of her two passions would be most appreciated. Heidi was all about supporting her community and animals, and below are two organizations that could really use your help.
Please maker the donation in the name of: HeidiGallegos (spouse, Romy) 1 rue McGill #610 Montreal QC H2Y 4A3
Chez Doris The AWCM is pleased to announce that it is supporting Chez Doris with a donation of $2,000. Our donation will support the women of Chez Doris with their new laundry program that will launch in 2021.
