THE NEST RECURRING
How We Can Help- Donation Collection at the December 2021 meeting
PWF has a rich history of supporting local charities that serve women and children, and it’s Reindeer Express time again! The Nest provides a safe and healing environment for women and children. This year they need warm coats, gloves and hats for children from birth to five years old. Our own Janie Olmstead reached our to her contact at Macy’s who will bring coats for children from zero to five years old for purchase and donation. We will have a donation site at our December Vendors’ Event on December 1. As you always do, please open your hearts and keep these children warm and cozy.

*If you’d rather someone else do the shopping, donations of cash or a check written out to the agency are gratefully accepted.
Watch for information from the Membership Committee about how you can volunteer to help one of these organizations in a hands-on way with your fellow PWF members.
As you become aware of other great organizations supporting women in Lexington remember that they can be nominated for a Dreambuilder project for next year, 2022. In the meantime, please encourage members of other organizations to Join PWF. As a PWF member they will have opportunities to share information about upcoming events in the newsletter as well as placing information on the Member Information Table by the entrance to our meeting space. Also, as a PWF member you or your designate can attend the monthly meeting and network with other PWF members so that they know what is coming up at your agency. A relatively new option is the PWF Spotlight program, where an organization sponsors a meeting and has the opportunity to speak to the group for 3 minutes before the keynote speaker. In addition, the Spotlight organization receives recognition leading up to the meeting in the newsletter and on the website / social marketing.
