DONATE IF YOU CAN!
With blood supplies running low, the Red Cross is asking for our help. Today 1st VP of the Woman's League of Mt. Holly, Doreen Carnvale donated at a local Red Cross drive. Over the next few weeks drives will move to different sites in our area. PLEASE go to their website, check out the date, time and locations coming up and if you can, make an appointment to give your precious blood. Thank you Doreen for your gift which will help so many.
Thanks to Jackie, Carol, Joelle, Doreen, and Bette for visiting the Head Start in Lumberton to read Dr. Seuss books to the children. We aren't sure who had more fun....them or the kids.

Joyce Schultz, representing The Woman's League of Mt. Holly, delivered bagels and all the fixings to the Mount Holly Police Dept. this morning. As we all pull together to do what we can to help our community get through this unprecedented time in our lives, we wanted to show our appreciation and support for the men and women in blue who work so hard to keep us safe. Thank you, MHPD for your service. Stay safe, stay well and know that your community appreciates all you are doing.
Good news! The final total for our Red Wagon collection came to... drum roll please.... $800! So instead of one or two wagons, our club will now be able to donate funds to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to purchase 8 little red wagons! A big thanks to each and every one of you who so generously donated to this worthy cause. This exceeds our wildest expectations and we are so appreciative of your kind support. A check will be sent to St. Jude in Memphis, TN very soon. We are sending them smiles! 🙂
Many, many thanks,

I'm am so happy to report to you the success of the meal packet initiative that I started right before Easter.
The initial intention was to support two healthcare facilities by providing the meal solution packets that they can take home to combine with common pantry/freezer items to prepare a healthy meal with their families. We blew our goal out of the water! Through the generosity of league members and other community members, enough money was raised ($1175.00) to purchase 472 meal packets, which will be distributed to FOUR facilities: Virtua Memorial Hospital, Virtua Rehabilitation Center, Cambridge Rehabilitation Center, and Deborah Hospital.
To support and help keep them and their families safe during this pandemic, Dory Dickson, from the Migrant Worker Outreach of South Jersey, received a trunk full of donations from the Woman's League of Mt. Holly. Some members were busy collecting various items for the children while other members and friends were at their machines sewing masks. Over 50 boxes of crayons, 50 coloring books, 12 puzzles, several children's sunglasses, hair ties, and adult bed pillows, More than 300 masks were given to Dory to be used by the Migrant Worker Outreach of South Jersey program. Thank you to all who helped to make this project a success.
We will be taking these items to the facilities at the end of the week.
I cannot thank you enough for your support on this endeavor. While this may just be a token of our gratitude, I feel it will mean something to those that are giving of themselves in these facilities taking care of our community to know they are appreciated.
Stay safe everyone! Karen
A NEW BEGINNING
