Thanks to all of our ETLAW members for making our 2014 Annual YWCA Toiletry Drive a huge success! We donated over 400 welcome bags and many other assorted toiletry and self-care items to the YWCA. We also made a financial contribution of $135.00 to the YWCA with excess financial contributions from our members.
We owe a special thanks to Rebecca Satterfield at Eldridge & Blakney, P.C.! Rebecca attended the 2013 December Luncheon with the firm and since then, she has been on a mission to find ways to make our project more comforting for the women of the YWCA. She donated beautiful handmade candy poppers. Additionally, Rebecca inspired a friend from her church who donated 30 hand-knit hats.
As you all heard from Marigail and Gladys at the December Luncheon, the welcome bags and other items are very meaningful for the YWCA residents. I am looking forward to serving as Community Outreach Chair for 2015 and organizing this event again in December. If you have any suggestions for improving the Toiletry Drive, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
