Wallet getting too thick to fold or close?  Have 5¢ and 10¢ bills lying around your house?  Place any Canadian Tire money you would like to donate into the jar above the family drawers.  Our administrator collects it weekly and uses it towards the purchase of small items Westminster requires such as dish soap, batteries, water filters etc.  Every little bit helps!
