Home Front Care Kits for Veterans

 

November 7, 2019- Provincial Capital Commission Marks 75th Anniversary of D-Day with Veteran Care Packages

During the First and Second World War, a popular activity in North America was to send care kits of stitchery, knitting, letters and snacks to soldiers on the front lines to raise morale and thank them for protecting our rights and freedoms at home.  Veterans gathered at a small ceremony at Government House today. The ceremony served two purposes: to honor their service and distribute the care kits.

The Regina Stitchery Guild partnered with the Provincial Capital Commission, the Royal Canadian Legion and UnderstandUs.  UnderstandUs is a volunteer initiative that combats the stigma of mental health. Members of the Regina Stitchery Guild provided hand made and stitched items such as book marks, Christmas ornaments, scarves, fridge magnets.
