The Gianna Centre for new and pregnant moms is being nurtured by its new neighbours.
In the few short months since the Gianna Centre moved into its new location last fall, the local Catholic Women’s League, Knights of Columbus and other volunteers have stepped up to build a flourishing community garden, and to deliver food and clothing hampers to 13 of the Gianna Centre’s client families.
“I just feel like we’re the new neighbours on the block and you have just welcomed us so beautifully,” said Vera Fischer, manager of the Gianna Centre. “I hope it’s a long and fruitful friendship. I think that they appreciate that desire. It’s mutual.”
