Royal Canadian Legion Alberta Branch 39

Marjorie Rivers knits for the Izzy Doll program run by RCL Branch 39. She has

already contributed 3 times over the last year and we would like to recognize her for

her amazing contribution to this effort. Others in the community have also

contributed to this program.

This program was started by a Canadian Peace Keeper who lost his life while

attempting to remove live land mines.  We collect them from volunteers in our

community and surrounding areas and send them to Ottawa for disbursement to

children who are living in war torn countries or countries that are suffering from

natural disasters. They are made small enough so that soldiers can carry one in their

pockets and can bring some comfort to the children they encounter.  In Vegreville

we were asked to keep some dolls in our community to be dispersed through our

local RCMP and Emergency Services.  We hold a small portion back from each

collection if they are needed here.



Over 200 Izzy Dolls being shipped to Edmonton, then to Ottawa for disbursement to children where ever needed.
