Plans for the first two Volunteer Participation Opportunities are Under Way!!
1. For the September 12th General Meeting, members are invited to help two of our current Grantee Organizations:
Burn Institute and CSUSM Ace Scholars
These organizations need school/art supplies for the youths in their programs. Members can purchase $25 worth according to this suggestion:
Last Names from A-M please buy plain printer paper, pencils, wire-bound notebooks, pads of lined paper, ball point pens;
Last Names from N-Z--please buy lined filler paper, file folders with pockets, highlighters, smaller note pads, coloring books.
Bring your items to the September 12th meeting where Cathy Hopf and Becky Horowitz will collect them. Cash is also accepted!
2. At the November 7th Meeting, members are invited to donate items to Dress For Success.
This organization was one of our finalists in the 2011 grant cycle but did not receive a grant. As a way to support this very important organization, the RSFWF will hold a clothing drive.
Members are encouraged to donate gently used, work appropriate clothing and accessories (or cash) to this very worthy cause. More details will follow--but hold on to anything that you may be considering discarding until this event!
For any questions about either of these events,
call Cathy at (858) 759-0887
or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
