HOLIDAY DRIVE

WCC is proud to collect toiletry donations to make "Swag Bags” for Teenage Abuse Victims at Kristi House to be distributed during their December 14 Holiday Party. Please bring unopened toiletries to the Nov 19 Entrepreneur Lunch & Learn event to benefit teenage victims of childhood sexual abuse. Donations may include: lip balm, travel size shampoos, lotions, soaps, etc. Cash donations will also be collected for purchase of additional items for the swag bags.
 
At the party, each teenage girl will be given a "swag bag" to take home that the WCC Board Members will package with donated and purchased toiletries. Kristi House Executive Director, Trudy Novicki, and Board Member Loretta Nido remarked that these simple items will work wonders towards healing these girls from unspeakable abuse by lifting their self-esteem and allowing them to feel glamorous for a little while.
 
As Kristi House expects approximately 100 teenage girls at the holiday party, donations by event attendees are greatly appreciated. If you are unable to attend the event but would like to make a donation please contact Toma at info@womenschamberofcommerce.org.
 
About Kristi House
Kristi House (www.kristihouse.org) is a local non-profit dedicated to helping victims of childhood sexual abuse. Every year they host a holiday party for the children victims and their families or caregivers. The families are fed a full meal at the party and they get a bag of groceries to take home. The young children get toys. The food and the toys are already covered so we can focus solely on the teenagers. In the past, the teenagers have gotten age-appropriate toys or a gift card to a store like Target but our toiletry gift bags would be an exciting and welcome change.
