On Wednesday December 16th, 2015 we had the pleasure to host “Tis The Season For Giving”, a holiday’s drive for the Women’s Lunch Place at Minibar in the Back Bay area.
The Women’s lunch place is a day shelter for all self-identified women who are experiencing homelessness or poverty. Women’s Lunch Place strives to meet guests’ most basic and immediate needs while coordinating and delivering critical support services designed to help women achieve greater stability and self-sufficiency whenever possible.
For instance, they provide over 240 breakfasts and lunch a day but that is not all. They also provide these women with some absolute necessary items including toiletries, underwear and warm clothes for the winter that our NAWMBA chapter members decided to collect.
We had a great time mingling over some appetizers and drinks. We also had the opportunity to meet Megan Sweeney from the Women’s Lunch Place who provide our guests with further insights on her work with the association.
The NAWMBA chapter would like to thank everyone who attended and supported this cause by donating. At this great even we collected $128 worth of in-kind donations and over 200 individual items!!!
If you did not have a chance to donate, we encourage you to donate today.
