Fernie auxiliary society gives back on Mother’s Day

Women at Rocky Mountain Village in Fernie will this year receive self care products

No woman will be forgotten by the Rocky Mountain Village Auxiliary Society (RMVAS) as it prepares to make the rounds on Mother’s Day.

This year, the Society will provide residents with a bottle of Dove body wash to help those who may not have the self care products they need.

Mother’s Day is just one of the many occasions that RMVAS recognizes.

The registered charity ensures residents have gifts on Christmas Day, Father’s Day and their birthdays, also adding to their comfort with purchases such as weighted blankets, iPods for the musical memory program and even pots and bowls for cooking classes.

Monetary contributions are often the quickest and most effective way to make a difference, and help someone in need, according to RMVAS.

Donations can be made by cheque payable to RMV Auxiliary Society and can be mailed to 55 Cokato Road, Fernie, BC, V0B1M4. They can also be made via e-transfer to
