The Comfort Tree is a favourite Westwood tradition. On the four Sundays leading up to Winter Solstice we decorate our tree with gifts from the Neighbour Centre’s winter wish list. One Sunday during this period the offering is also designated for a special cash collection. Please check the posts below for this year’s dates and any specific requests or events such as Comfort Day, when Westwood members and friends gather to make items for the Comfort Tree.
An inter-generational opportunity to work, laugh, chat and and contribute to the larger community, and there’s always a delicious lunch to sustain the efforts. All welcome, and no sewing experience required.
The items created on Comfort Day are made available to place on the tree on the four Sundays leading up to Solstice, as well as items brought by those attending each Sunday.
