Senator Barbara Buono, representing the 18th Legislative District, made a very special visit to Women Aware on Friday, December 14, to deliver toys and gifts for our 5th Annual Holiday Gift Shop. After delivering her gifts, Senator Buono took a brief tour of the Women Aware offices, which had been miraculously transformed into a holiday wonderland.
This two-day event will provide an opportunity for 70 families impacted by violence to celebrate the season by selecting gifts generously donated by individuals, groups and businesses in our area. Women Aware’s clients have an average family income of less than $10,000, making this an incredibly impactful event.
The gift shop is operated by Women Aware staff and a cadre of dedicated volunteers – all primed and ready to help support families in need this holiday season. Women Aware would like to thank all of those who help make this such a special occasion for the families with whom we work. We are fortunate to have the support of such compassionate volunteers and supporters.
From our family to yours – HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
