The Holiday Season is approaching rapidly, stores are more crowded and the traffic is
increasing. So is the urgency to help the single mothers in our community that are
struggling to provide basic needs for their families.
As in the past BPWEV will help several families with clothing and food donations for
Christmas. The Salvation Army in Venice will provide us again with the first names of
3 single mothers and the wish list for their children. After shopping for the items needed
the funds left will be donated to Englewood Helping Hand, Inc. to buy food for their
For many years our Women Helping Women Project has been BPWEV’s special
endeavor for the Holiday Season to help disadvantaged single mothers in our
community. Please help us to continue this tradition. At the November Meeting and the
BPWEV Christmas Celebration I will pass an envelope around for your donations.
If you wish to pay by check, please make it out to BPWEV but add in the memo
field “Donation to BPWEV/WHW project.”
Your help will brighten the Holidays for many families!
Thank you for your generosity!
