|APABA Silicon Valley Community Service Event: Blankets for Children in Foster Care
Sunday, December 6, 2015
Come help us make blankets for the My Stuff Bags Foundation [http://www.mystuffbags.org]! The blankets are quite easy to make (no craft skills necessary). The blankets will be delivered to the My Stuff Bags Foundation for children who enter foster care after being removed from dangerous situations at home. These children frequently enter foster care, crisis shelters, domestic violence and homeless shelters with nothing of their own. Our blankets may help bring some comfort to these children's lives this winter.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to attend. Thanks!
