Happy new year! I hope 2008 is off to a great start for you.
As the tradition goes, I've made several new year's resolutions and one of them is to contribute more to my community. In that spirit, I'd like to invite you to a charity event that Sonia Parekh and I have organized for Saturday February 2. The event is an afternoon tea on behalf of the Bay Area Women's & Children's Center (BAWCC)*.
BAWCC addresses the needs of low-income families, children, and women and assists them in achieving long-term stability through a variety of services such as classes and workshops. BAWCC has also implemented community projects that have resulted in the construction of children's playgrounds, a community recreation center, and an elementary school and family center.
Our efforts are focused on supporting the BAWCC Clothes Closet program, which provides free clothing to women and children in need. Job-interview wardrobes are also provided through the program. At our event "Tea for Two," we will be collecting donations* of new and gently-used work, maternity and baby clothes. Our hope is that this event provides an impetus to do a little spring cleaning, have a little fun, and contribute to a good cause :)
If you cannot attend the tea but would like to donate*, contributions may also be dropped off at the BAWCC, located in San Francisco . For more information please see the attached flyer or visit www.teafortwosf.com. More information on BAWCC can be found at www.bawcc.org .
