Feed The Streets
A beautiful partnership… For more than a year, Woman’s Life Chapter 813 Columbus, Ohio members have supported Feed the Streets, an organization that serves the homeless population on Columbus’ west side. One of their favorite projects is utilizing a Volunteer Service Project Grant from Woman’s Life Insurance Society, to purchase the soup ingredients and blanket materials to distribute hot soup and cozy blankets on cold days to local homeless people. Rain or shine, this chapter is always committed to making a difference!
The members of Woman’s Life Chapter 897 Lansing, MI look forward to gathering every month. In November, members donated 50 blankets for the Davis Project, a nonprofit organization providing very ill children and their families rides to medical appointments and hospital stays, to help comfort them. Members used a volunteer service project grant to purchase the fleece materials to make handmade blankets and provide an extra source of comfort during difficult times for the children and their families. Great job Chapter 897!
An unexpected gift can bring tremendous warmth to your heart – and your body if it’s a handmade blanket! Woman’s Life Chapter 802 of Grove City, Ohio gathered to make fleece tie blankets, for children in need. Using a volunteer service project grant from Woman’s Life Insurance Society, members purchased materials to make the blankets that will benefit the children through Project Linus, an organization committed to providing impoverished children warmth for the winter. Warm toes and warm hearts mean happy kids!
