MOTHER'S DAY 2019 - AT 4 METRO DETROIT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTERS
Benefiting: First Step, Haven, Interim House and Turning Point
For Mother’s Day 2019, Project Beautiful - Inside and Out was again at four Metro Detroit domestic violence shelters: First Step in Wayne County, Haven in Oakland County, Interim House in Detroit, and Turning Point in Macomb County.
Our contributions consisted of:
A catered brunch at each shelter for the women and their families,
100 gift bags for the women across the four shelters valued at $100+,
$1000 - $1500 worth of needs list items to each shelter (personal, beauty and baby care items, feminine hygiene items, bras, panties, PJ's, cleaning products and more),
Inspirational Quote board for each shelter created at our Panties in a Bunch Brunch by attendees, and
Donation of $1500 - $2000 per shelter for a project of their choice. First Step's donation went to repairs and beautification of the grounds, Haven - an organic garden, Turning Point - new blankets and other needs, and Interim House (special gift of $2000) - ceiling fans because their facility is not air -conditioned.
