Avalon This is a shelter for women who have experienced domestic violence or finds themselves homeless. We provide every day products that are needed by the women and children.
Christmas Projects We choose different projects depending on the needs of certain groups and deliver various types of Christmas packages to brighten the holidays for those who are less fortunate.
Fish Each month, members bring canned and/or boxed food to the business meeting to help keep the shelves of the Fish pantry stocked. Members deliver the food to Fish. Needy families in the area are allowed to visit Fish at various times to select groceries to take home with them. We also usually make a financial donation to allow Fish to suppliment needed items that they do not receive from donations.
Medical Kits Each member is given a fuzzy purse at the beginning of the year and asked to put their loose change in it and return the purse to the club treasurer when it is full. The monies collected allow us to fund a medical kit that consists of routine household medical needs such as band-aides, asprin, alcohol, etc. The kits are distributed to third world countries. The approximate cost of each kit is $90. We try to send at least three kits annually.
Helping people is what Soroptimist is all about...
