NCJW adopts a HOPE family

Local News l

Thank you, thank you, to everyone who brought items to the May installation luncheon. We “covered the Bottoms” of a lot of the littlest ones at Children First.

NCJW has partnered with HOPE HOUSE, a shelter for abused women and their children for many years. This shelter is located in Bradenton and provides vulnerable women with the opportunity to escape abusive situations to get a start on rebuilding their lives.

This year, as a change, the Board has decided to adopt a family in December. We will do whatever we can to make the holidays special for this family. Hope House will identify, and give us the particulars of our family in October – how many members are in the family, what the ages are, and whether the children are boys or girls, and what sizes they wear. We will be given suggestions for gifts, both practical and a wish list.

We will ask our members to sign up for specific items (we don’t want 25 pairs of PJ’s). Any items that our members don’t provide, we will purchase with funds collected in our Hope House boxes. These are the boxes that we pass around at meetings and luncheons.
Look for more information in October. We will send an e-blast with specifics, as soon as we get them. Thanking you in advance for making the holidays special for one family.
