Message from the President

Happy New Year to all our members and families!! Looking forward a great start to 2017 and what we have to be thankful for. It is very heartwarming to see how we have come together as a club supporting the homeless and hungry in our community. Our partnership with the West Shore School District social worker helping these children in need is amazing; all our donations are going straight to the families in directly. This month’s collection items are sweatpants and sweatshirts (girls & boys from 5T – Adult 2XL). If you are unable to get to the store to shop monetary donations are also accepted.

Thanks to all of you our fundraising projects the last few months have been fantastic we are right on tract budget wise for scholarships. We need to continue to pat ourselves on the back. –We are awesome!!!

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you in January at the general meeting on the 16th. Also, I’d like to thank everyone for your thoughts, prayers, cards and friendship over these past few months. My husband is doing better and coming home from the hospital Friday, January 6th.
