Marriott Town Center Hotel, 200 Lee St., E., Charleston, WV 25301
Presenter: Traci Nelson’s Reindeer Games
Please join us for the year-end party as we celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas and the coming of 2019! The Marriott Town Center Hotel will be our hosts for the party.
Please make your magic for young angels
The Children’s Home Society (CHS) provides members of the WVSAE community the opportunity to give back in a very special way. The CHS, through its Davis Shelter here in Charleston, serves approximately 20 kids ages 10-17 at any given time, kids who often show up with just the clothes on their back and no personal items of any kind. The children at the other 10 CHS facilities have the same story. You can help these young angels have a better holiday. Donations not used in Charleston will be shared with the other shelters across West Virginia.
It’s simple. You can even share your donation in a large zip lock bag! Just decide if you want to “build a bag” for a boy or a girl. Then fill the bag with goodies…
For boys, the needed goodies include shampoo, cologne, deodorant, wallets, combs, pens, pencils, journals, drawing pads, etc.
For girls, the needed goodies include hair brushes, shampoo and conditioner, nail polish, makeup, perfume, deodorant, hand lotion, small purses, pens, pencils, journals, drawing pads, etc.
One year, a young girl said all she wanted for Christmas was some shampoo and conditioner, because she had to use a bar of soap or dish liquid (when she had those) to wash her hair. Each of us is blessed to have things these children can’t take for granted.
You get the idea, Please be an angel for these young angels in the names of Jan Vineyard and Nancy Tonkin, two tremendous supporters of this organization.
Please make your magic for your peers, too!
In addition to contributions for the young angels, we’re asking that you bring a door prize if at all possible. Several members have already contributed “goodies,” so we’ll have drawings throughout the evening!
