Holiday Party for Homeless Women
In December the Members of the Committee on Homeless Women and Children hosted the annual holiday party for homeless women at the Georgia Travis Center in San Jose. A hot meal started the festivities, and then the women unwrapped their presents (4 gifts for each woman) which included such welcome items as warm hoodies, scarves and gloves. Finally the women selected jewelry from the items left after last year’s English Tea. This is a huge treat for all of the women. Thank you to everyone who donated gifts for the women, helped wrap the packages, or helped prepare and serve the dinner. Your generosity certainly “made the season bright” for these women.
A primary fundraiser for the Homeless Women and Children as well as the local scholarships is the English Tea. This year, the English Tea is planned for April 21. SAVE THE DATE. Details are in the English Tea Flyer.
Here are some highlights from past teas:
2014 – A typical place setting
2013 – It was all about the “Hats”
… and jewelry sales
… and the Silent Auction
