One Hundred Good Women members have always been very generous with their time and their spirit making the holidays a little happier for others. We’re hoping that you will open your hearts and reach down as deep as you can to be as generous as you have been in the past year, as we’ve faced more requests for assistance than ever before.
As always, before you go shopping, please check with Jennie at
or by calling 785-380-7508 so that we avoid duplications.
This year we are adopting our usual teens from the Lawrence School District and single moms from the Lawrence Community Homeless Shelter. We also have 3 families, and are helping Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus with gifts at First Step House.

First Step House/Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus
Every year this delightful couple visits First Step House to deliver presents to the women in recovery and the children with them. For this, we need:
Moms - 40 bath items – you know, a lovely soap, lotion, etc. (not just a bottle of Dove).
Children - 15 stuffed animals
To avoid that awkward situation of one child having a huge stuffed animal and another have a little bitty one, please keep the size to something mid-range. In either the purchase of the bath item or the stuffed animals, please keep the limit between $5 and $10.
Please let Jennie know at
or by calling her at 785-380-7508 before you shop so that we can avoid duplications. Gifts must be wrapped, tagged and delivered by Monday, December 17. To make arrangements to deliver the gifts, please call or email Jennie.
