Are you a newcomer to the Edson area? Are you a new parent? If so, you are eligible for a Community Welcome Project bag!
Each bag is chock full of important information on Edson, as well as some goodies from many local businesses and the Galloway Station Museum, including samples, coupons, and special freebies for you and your family. (In addition to these items, the baby bags will also include essential baby items and information on infant programs in Edson).
This program is FREE and is open to Edson and area residents.
Community Welcome Project Newcomer Bag: Newcomers must not have lived in Edson for the past five years. Individuals may only qualify for a Newcomer Bag once.
Community Welcome Project Baby Bag: Any parent who is expecting or has a child who is one year or younger are eligible for a New Baby Bag. This does not only apply to first time-parents only—parents can receive a New Baby Bag for each newborn.
Anyone is welcome to reach out to the Community Welcome Project for information on services or to set up a meeting to discuss what programs and services are available locally.
Eligible program recipients will set up an informal meeting with Galloway Station Museum staff, where they will be provided with a bag and a casual introduction to what is available to them in Edson and area. Due to COVID-19, this informal meeting will be in the form of either a phone call or a Zoom call, and bags can be delivered or picked up through curbside pickup at the Galloway Station Museum.
