Donations for My Stuff Bags from GFWC-Brown Deer Junior Woman's Club

In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness month in October and Advocate for Children’s week (last week of October), Erin Epping, Lakeshore District President, collected items for children to donate to Christ Child Society of Milwaukee. Erin is also a member of Brown Deer Junior Woman's Club.

Concern about children who have been removed from homes because of abuse, neglect or natural disaster led Christ Child Society members to initiate the My Stuff Bags program. Often, children in crisis leave home suddenly or without notice to pack clothing or personal items.

My Stuff Bags are given to social service agencies for distribution to children in crisis. They bring comfort to children placed in difficult situations and remind them that someone cares about them.

Thank you for your generosity to all club members who participated in the collection of items. Enough items were collected throughout the District to fill a pick-up truck. Christ Child Society members were overwhelmed and thankful for the contributions.
