Current Needs

It’s time for our Annual Holiday Adoptions! 

This year as I received our Holiday Families, I was especially humbled by the requests. Simple things like underwear, socks, pots and pans.  Of course, kids are kids and they also want toys – some kind of expensive! – but they don’t know boundaries like that.  And there are more families than usual.  There are more people in need.  As always, One Hundred Good Women members are so generous with their time and their spirit. We’re hoping that you will open your hearts and reach down as deep as you can again and help make the holidays a little happier for others. 

**Remember, before you go shopping, please check with Jennie at jennie@100goodwomen.org  or by calling 760-0914 so that we avoid duplications.**
