LWR Women's Club helps give 2-year-old a special birthday

The LWR Women's Club was recently thanked for its contributions in making a local 2-year-old boy's birthday special.

Members of the club contributed "Birthday Party Bags" as part of a charity effort to help Hope Family Services, which provides services to survivors of domestic violence.

The boy's mother made cupcakes and used the party bags as she decorated the room to surprise the boy when he awoke from his nap. A thank you note from Hope Family Services said "we/she could not have done it without the dedicated Women's Club members who made the bags. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

The LWR Women's Club is supporting Hope Family Services and two other selected charities, SMART Riding Therapy and Solve Maternity Homes, this year. The club's philanthropy committee meets with each charity to determine its needs, then works toward filling those requests through fundraising events.
