All of us at Comunity Service are so appreciative of all of you who donated hats and scarves, which we gave to many children to keep them warm and toasty this winter. Please do continue to donate as the need is ongoing.
Thanks for all members who have answered the call from Marion Kraskow and are now volunteering with the New York Blood Center.
Also, kudos to those ladies who have been helping out at The Book Fairies warehouse in Freeport. They have been sorting books, distributing books, and they also bring books for donation. Look for announcements of Book Fairs in local schools. Those are a wonderful way to see the smiles of children who are taking home the very first books they have ever owned. Seven of our members assisted at the Centennial Ave School book fair in December. Thanks to all.
We love photos! If you are doing any Community Service work at any of our affilitates, please take a moment to have someone snap a photo of you volunteering, so that we can show you in action both in the bulletin and on the MWI website.
We are already looking ahead towards the NAMI WALK 2018, so look for info on kick off events.
