GFWC Cranston Community Women's Club
Celebrating Mother's Day
GFWC Cranston Community Women's Club started the Mother's Day weekend by bringing gifts to mothers living at Sstarbirth. A facility on the prison grounds who live in a home with their young children during a year of rehabilitation for substance abuse. You can't see their smiles or tears because of confidentiality but picture an 18-year-old living with a child who made a poor decision and is separated from family.
Helping our Veterans
Valerie went shopping with Pat for the ladies at the Holly Charette House. Our favorite project . The children from Metcalf Elem school had a fundraiser to help us select beautiful bedding for our women Vets. Thank you to Mr. Buco a great teacher who supported his students in this fundraiser. The sheets and comforters are a beautiful array of colors. Thanks again GFWC Project Chair for Operation Stand Down.
