Our NAWIC group has always come together to make good things happen. This 2013 holiday season we had another opportunity through our community outreach project to show the spirit of our group as we helped those who are less fortunate. This year we chose to assist Catholic Charities. “Operation NAWIC New Home” was born.
At the time we began, Catholic Charities had 20 families in need of new homes. It is their goal to help each family find shelter and a place to call their own. We helped by furnishing some of the basic household items everyone needs. Catholic Charities accepts new items but gentle used items had a home with Carpenter Place.
A spreadsheet listing the needed goods was provided to the members and … donations were brought to our holiday gathering on December 10th at Red Rock in Bradley Fair.
Loads of items would provide cheer and a happy new year for the newly housed families.
