2016 Dreambuilders Projects

2016 Dreambuilders Suggestion Form

LET’S BUILD SOME DREAMS!

Our PWF members submitted their suggested charities for our PWF members to support this year, the Dreambuilders’ Committee reviewed these requests, sent them to the PWF board for approval, and are ready to announce these wonderful charities to you now. The following is a list of the charities PWF will support this year, as well as some items each charity needs and some volunteer opportunities for your participation:

With this mix of agencies, in 2016 PWF would be supporting the following types of organizations:
-A women’s veteran’s group as it encourages the female vets to live a healthy life
-A residential group that helps women heal and re-enter the work force with new skills
-A literacy program that helps women get basic skills for work and self sufficiency
-A program to help women who have been victimized have 911 access
-A group that provides services to women as they struggle to support their family and help’s them provide joy to their children at Christmas

The donation items include some recycled items, some items that a member might have in her home office or that her work office might be willing to donate, and some things that would be purchased specifically for the donation project. In each case the donation suggestions target a limited number of items from the organization’s wish list so that the donations are manageable and so that members can see how the items will benefit the group.
