Photos and at the end...Why We Do What We Do

Karen and many volunteers kept super busy while I was away and the set-ups continued this week with two more.  Loads of you volunteered to help and due to everything else on our packed calendar just now, I am going to let the pictures do the talking.

But before I do, many thanks to Teresa for hosting the super meeting last week and to all of you for  making such a super effort to make this Christmas so special for the kids at Venice Community Housing.  We look forward to seeing as many of you as can make it to our wrapping party this Saturday, December 15, 10 AM to 4 PM at my house (2670 Topanga Skyline Drive/310.455.3850).  We seem to have plenty of tape but will need more scissors and wrapping paper/ribbon/gift tags.

Also a big thank you to Leslie Carlson and all at Topanga Homegrown for their terrific evening and generous donation to TWC.

And another big thank you to Liz Dupuy and the girls of Louisville for all their donations of personal care and other terrific items.  They have come through for TWC for several years now and their generosity is so appreciated.


And finally, enlarge the photo of the letter below by clicking on it.  TWC often contributes teen clothing to Safe Place for Youth (SPY), a drop-in center for run-away teens in Venice.  Through SPY we learned of a young man who was being moved into his own apartment.  He had nothing and we were able to share with him bed linens and towels and cleaning items and non-perishable foods.  
The thank you note below is from him.
