Community Service Project: Christmas Bags for Helen Wright Center for Women

  • Dec 7, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

At the September 2013 meeting we decided to again contribute to the purchase of holiday gift bags to the 36 women in transition (temporarily homeless) living at the Helen Wright Center.

Members are encouraged to contribute to this project and purchase bags for these ladies. Bags cost $12 each.

Gift bags will contain full size personal care products such as body wash, shampoo, deodorant and treats like cookies, peanut butter crackers and chocolates. Items will be obtained in bulk from Dollar Tree by Lee Brown.

We will meet on Saturday, Dec 7 at 1pm to bag gifts, enjoy a light lunch and deliver gift bags to the Helen Wright Center at 3pm via car pool. The center is located at 491 W. Cabarrus St., Raleigh. Lee will provide lunch.

 
You may bring your contribution to the November meeting or send your check to Lee @ 9025 Pleasant Meadow Drive, Raleigh NC 27615.

    I was tired today, but being with my "Girlfriends" gave me some energy. The ladies in the shelter were full of personality as well. They all seemed very appreciative of our efforts. Thank you Lee for putting it together for a second year.
