The QWCA Tin Can Bay Branch was busy sorting and wrapping numerous gifts for distribution to families affected by the drought. President Dawn McGinley is thrilled at the generosity of the public and Branch members.

“The joy of giving is alive in this room today,” Dawn said as the branch ladies, and mighty Mark, worked like Santa’s elves in a well-oiled production line.
