Elsie is the wife of the late Dr. Walter Kerber, founder of the For We Care Organization. Elsie has gone on 12 mission trips and before each trip gathered hundreds of items to take with her or send with our Care-givers so that gifts could be given out at each project. In recent years wool is being gathered so that ladies can make sweaters, baby blankets and afghans, etc. These finished projects are sent to orphanages in Russia and Romania. This is an ongoing project that gives seniors the encouragement to use their gifts and to keep children warm. Elsie lives in Calgary, Alberta.
