For the last month, AMLA Lodge 6 - Slovenski Dom, has worked with AMLA Members and Friends to collect items to donate to WomanSafe, a local shelter that provides emergency shelter and support services to survivors of domestic violence throughout Northeast Ohio.
A big thanks to those of our members and lodges who provided contributions to our WomenSafe fundraiser at the AMLA Family Clam Bake, AMLA Lodge 6 greatly appreciate your support. There will be opportunities to make donations at upcoming AMLA events too!
If you are considering supporting this initiative and donating to WomenSafe, there are a couple other special items they need to fulfill the holidays for those families in shelter. One is gift cards for Aldi’s or Giant Eagle for the families in shelter to be able to purchase items to prepare a meal for the Thanksgiving Holiday. They also have and an adopt a family program for the holidays in which organizations can support a family and provide them with items from their holiday wish list. We are excited to share that AMLA Lodge 6 will be partnering with AMLA Lodge 45 - Modern Crusaders for this special holiday giving initiative. If you would like to do something like this, please reach out to the AMLA Home Office for more information. Lastly, if you have some time to share, they are always looking for volunteers. AMLA Lodge 6 will be getting a group together in December to go to WomenSafe to wrap gifts. If you would like to join us, please let us know.
As a reminder the needs list for WomenSafe can be found in this issue of the Our Voice and your contributions can be dropped off at the Home Office. There is also an option to purchase online at Womensafe.org/current-needs and have the items shipped directly to WomenSafe.
