In the Know – The latest Women’s Club charity projects

Jan Utzman

The Women’s Club Community Relations Charity Projects Committee will be assembling snack packs in May for the children who are sheltered at the Friends of the Family Shelter. The committee volunteers will make snack packs containing healthy, nutritious foods that will be passed out during school breaks and summertime breaks and for the children to take home with them. The snack packs will be assembled here at Robson Ranch and given to Friends of the Family Shelter for distribution.

We are in need of the following items that can be used in the snack packs. If you could contribute any of these items it would be extremely helpful. We are asking you to purchase any of these items and bring them to the Women’s Club May luncheon, Monday, May 1, 11:00 a.m. – noon and drop them off at the service table by the Ballroom main doors. Please specify the items are for the Friends of the Family Snack Pack program. Or if you would like to contribute money for us to buy these items, that would also be greatly appreciated.

If you can find these items in small sizes, it would be helpful; however, we appreciate any size. Fresh fruit will be added to these sacks just before distribution. Items needed: peanut butter, ranch dressing, applesauce, peanuts, mixed nuts, dried fruit, trail mix, granola bars, dry cereal, party mix and pretzels.

Also on the Women’s Club Community Relations Charity Projects calendar is the Women’s Club booth at the After Schoolers Garage Sale, Saturday, April 22. Please also consider making a contribution to our Women’s Club booth for the After Schoolers Garage Sale on Saturday, April 22. The requested donation items include: home accessories (including candlesticks, framed pictures, vases, urns, floral arrangements, pillows, lamps, small furniture pieces); kitchen pottery, ceramics and unused cookware; children’s car seats, tricycles/bikes. Sorry, we will not be accepting clothing, electronics, games or children’s toys.

Monies earned from this sale will be used to buy items for our charity projects.

Thank you very much in advance for your consideration and donations.
