Outreach Opportunity: Doorways for Women and Families
Please join us in making Mother's at Doorways feel special. Doorways is an Arlington based non-profit that has been providing support for women and children fleeing domestic violence since 1978. Doorways does this in numerous ways, including providing emergency and temporary housing for families. Because women facing the challenge of domestic abuse often struggle with low self-esteem, we would like to support them this Mother's Day by providing them with a small gift to affirm that they are, indeed, special. Our goal is to provide 10 gift bags, each containing: a nail polish, a pretty soap, and a small candy bar. You can help by providing a complete bag or by simply providing some of the individual items. Please drop off whatever you'd like to contribute by the parish office by the end of the day on Tuesday (5/4) so that we assemble them and deliver them to Doorways on Wed (5/5). If we end up with more than 10 bags, we will give the extras to Doorways to offer to women as they are moving into housing.
