March On for Community Service at Soroptimist meeting

March 22, 2016 - at our annual grant awards meeting we hosted guests from 8 agencies.  They shared with us what their grants would be used for in their respective organizations.  It's always a special day when we get to see what all of our hard work is doing in the community.

The following organizations received service grants from our 2014-15 fundraising activities:

  • AAUW
  • Girls on the Run
  • My Sister's House
  • Safetyville
  • Sierra Forever Families
  • WEAVE
  • Wellness Within

We also presented 50 comfort kits, we made for homeless girls, to a representative of WIND Youth Services.  These kits include toiletries and under garments that are much needed by these young girls.

This event is a highlight for our members and gives these agencies a chance to hear what others are doing in the community to serve women, girls and children.

Grants are awarded each year through our Service Grant application process.  These applications are typically available at the beginning of our year, in September, and can be downloaded.  Completed applications are sent to the service committee for approval in Dec/Jan.
