Welcome to CHW Calgary Centre

Dorothy Hanson, CHW Calgary Centre President

It is my honour to be the newest CHW Calgary Centre President. I am following in the footsteps of my mother, Lucille Hanson z”l, who was an avid supporter of CHW and served as Treasurer and President of a local chapter. My hope is to continue the good work of my predecessors, while adding my own creativity to this exciting opportunity.

In these unprecedented times, CHW Calgary Centre continues to contribute to the local community and our various projects in Israel. We now have three main fundraising campaigns each year to support at-risk women and children in Israel and Canada: the Annual Campaign supports healthcare; the Summer Campaign supports social services; and our End of Year Campaign supports education. I hope you will give generously when you receive that volunteer’s call.

In 2021, CHW Calgary Centre celebrated our 100th anniversary. We support many important initiatives in our community, including our yearly Toy Drive held in the fall to ensure that children and families in-need, who are clients of Jewish Family Service Calgary or are patients at Alberta Children’s Hospital, will receive a special Chanukah or Christmas gift, and our scholarships for students studying at Alberta University of the Arts.

I am looking forward to working with all our dedicated volunteers and engaging with our valued supporters, as we go from strength to strength.

– Dorothy Hanson
