The PEI Right to Life Association hosted a Christmas Open house event on Dec 14, 2017. As a thank you to the many volunteers and supporters of the pro-life cause on PEI we invited everyone to come and spend time with each other and to view our freshly renovated office space.
The Right to Life Office on Queen Street had not been renovated for many years and was in sore need for more than just a fresh coat of paint! in the past three months we were more than blessed to have 30 + people come out and bring our office into the 21st century! There were over 15 youth alone who spend two days painting, there were Knights of Columbus who came and pulled up and laid floors, there were several people who graciously took over the costs of materials and donated furniture and supplies, there were specialists who came to reorganize the computers and sort through the files, from “coffee, chairs, to ceiling tiles” someone was always willing to donate time and talent and show their support for the right to life in PEI! All this help was above and beyond what our membership already donates in membership fees and assistance for our work. We did not have to use any of our financial resources for this project.
In total we can add up over 300 hours of volunteer service given by Islanders. This does not even include the many hidden hours that so many people spent in just getting this or that done before one goes home from the office or time spent out looking on Kijiji or driving to New Brunswick to get a great deal on a desk! Some of us were even bludgeoned by the filing cabinet and risked “life and limb” for our dedication! Then, there were those who spent many quiet hours on detail work of touch ups, fine lettering on the Logo or working through the maze of computer issues!
Friends, I wish you all on behalf of the Board of the PEI Right to Life Association a very Merry Christmas! We were able to complete this project through your most generous support and love. So many gave of their time and talents and we are humbled to be recipients of such love and support. May God bless you richly and may our work enable us to educate and motivate all on PEI to stand for life and embrace the dignity and respect of every single human person from conception to natural death.
Come and visit our office in the New Year and see how you can make a difference in 2018!
Yours most appreciative,
PEI Right to Life Association
