The Richmond branch of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) has donated $1,600 to the St. Albans Reaching Home Hamper Program.

The program provides weekly nutritional hampers to over 30 Richmond families in need, as identified by the school district.

The CFUW chose the program because of its vital work in helping families with school-age children solve their food insecurities by providing heathy nutritional culturally appropriate food for meals.

CFUW - a non-partisan, voluntary, self-funded national organization of women with 99 clubs across Canada – was founded in 1919 and has been working to improve the status of women and to promote human rights, public education, social justice and peace.
