2022 Charity Check-Stop Success!
The 16th Annual Camrose and District Victim Services Charity Check-Stop Was a Success!
What a great event! Camrose Victim Services teamed up with The Camrose Women's Shelter Society and The Open Doors to spread some holiday joy. We were able to fill two trailers with toys, food, toiletries, and clothes! We also generously received monetary donations and gift cards! Camrose, thank you, thank you, thank you! YOU ROCK! What an event and it was so nice to see the community spirit in action!
