COMMUNITY OUTREACH

 

Every year our primary outreach events are creating Holiday House and decorating for the Edison Pageant of Light's Coronation Ball but we serve our community in other ways as well. Each month we meet, our club aids a different organization chosen by our sitting president. For the 2018-2019 year we are proud to support the following causes.

September

Blanket & Blessings - Blankets & Blessings started in 2012 when an eight year old boy wanted to collect blankets for some of the homeless people he encountered in his community. Today they passionately advocate for the homeless and needy in Southwest Florida. As a partner group we will collect shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine hygiene products, and snack food items; there is also seasonal need for blankets, jackets, socks, and hats.
