Giving back to the community and supporting the less fortunate are values held close to the heart of many sailors.

HMCS Edmonton’s Charity Bake Sale in support of SCPA Treat Week was just another example of how sailors are driven to find ways to give back at home, and abroad.

On Friday March 1, the crew of Edmonton came together to sell baked goods, donating 100 per cent of the revenue to the local SPCA.

“Helping our local B.C. SPCA is helping to protect and give a better quality of life to our furry friends,” said AB Myriam Dhaisne, who took leadership in coordinating the charity event. 

A few days later, AB Dhaisne, along with LS Pascale Masse-Lefebvre and SLt Anne Desgagne, presented $611.85 donation.

“I was really surprised and grateful how this fundraiser brought together the crew into baking some treats, and how much participation from the base and donations we received,” said AB Dhaisne after presenting the cheque to the SPCA with SLt Desgagne.
