SOCIAL JUSTICE EVENT
We were asking our Brandeis members to knit, crochet or loom hats & scarves to be donated to HOPE OF THE VALLEY HOMELESS PROJECT. Hope of the Valley provides multiple homeless shelters throughout the San Fernando Valley & Santa Clarita, including one for young adults aging out of foster care.
This is a photo of our members' donations of knitted hats & scarves. Hope of the Valley Homeless Shelter was only too pleased to receive our efforts.
The shelter expressed a need for men's/women's socks/underwear. Instead of our toy drive this year. Our community came together! Here is Look at the "mountain" of undies and socks that were collected for Hope of the Valley, and a photo of Penny, delivering the items to them.
They were thrilled to receive it all.
