Public Issues Department Update: December

Georgia Burn Foundation

Bring any pocket or loose change to the meetings each month!  We are collecting change for the GA Burn Foundation.  We know you have seen our wonderful firefighters collecting change in their boots along major intersections around the county.  The pocket change we collect at the meetings helps them with this drive.  Thanks to your generosity ladies, we have donated over $100 to this great organization! http://www.gfbf.org/

In addition, Lisa is collecting cases of bottle water to take to our Firefighters.  You can bring donations to day or Guild meetings (to Dawn).

Donations for Veterans

Lisa Lewis is coordinating donations of toiletries for both men and women veterans.  They are in dire need of daily living toiletries, including feminine hygiene products ).

Special Olympics Forsyth County

Thank you so much to the SWC ladies!   We look forward to continuing to donate to this organization and volunteering for their events throughout the year.  Winter games:  Bowling, Basketball, Floor Hockey, and Power Lifting began training this November with state competition in late January 2017.  Dawn is one of the new bowling coaches, and is having a blast. SOFC appreciates our club’s support, and we will be looking for SWC volunteers for the Spring Games come March 31st and April 14, 2017. For more information please visit www.soforsyth.com

 

Looking ahead to January 2017

Sam Shoemaker, the Executive Director for The Children’s Center for Hope and Healing, has agreed to be both our speaker at the day General Meeting on January 11, 2017 at 9 a.m. and the Guild meeting on January 17, 2017 at 6: 15 p.m.  He spoke to the club last year, and is truly amazing.  Sam looks forward to presenting to us at both sessions. http://www.hopeandhealingga.org/
