International Women's Day is March 8 and Camosun's Women in Trades (WITT) class is celebrating by giving back!

Instead of making take-home projects during their Fine Furniture unit, the class, with instructor Sandra Carr, built two custom-made cedar garden benches to donate to Victoria's 5th Annual International Women's Day fundraiser luncheon silent auction, hosted by the Bridges for Women Society. All funds raised by the benches will go directly to the society.

"I am so proud of the beautiful pieces that the class created, as well as their eagerness to raise funds to support other women within the community," says WITT Program Coordinator Jayna Wiewiorowski. "They worked so hard on the benches, even coming in after regular class hours to finish them on time for delivery. It was the perfect project for the ladies to celebrate the upcoming International Women's Day!"
