Connections | January 2014
Every Woman's Place for Support, Connections and Community.
Toy Room 2013 - We did it! 
With the generous support of the community, we were able to provide more than 845 women and 1655 children with holiday gifts this year.  

Last month alone, more than 3000 gifts came through our doors along with many heart-warming stories of generosity. Families donated their Christmas presents, teachers rallied the support of students in schools, volunteers donated time, gifts and baked goodies, and several individuals, companies and groups hosted toy drives and fundraising events.

Thank you to everyone who helped make it all possible. We really couldn't have done it without you!
