Thanks to everyone that participated in our Federation Day of Service on November 13. The chosen charity is Covenant House New Jersey, which has eight different sites for youth who have been on the streets due to untenable situations at home.

Thank you to all the District Vice Presidents and clubwomen who have graciously stepped up and volunteered to assist with this day. We collected $10 denomination gift cards from Visa, American Express, Walmart, Target, ShopRite and Dunkin Donuts.

In addition to the gift cards, we made greeting cards that day, as these will let the teens and young adults know we are thinking of them, and the staff can give them out when needed. We also tied fleece blankets to be given out to homeless young people for comfort and warmth.

Again, thanks to all the clubs and members that donated and participated in our Day of Service!
