SOS Treasurer Linda Eilenfeldt and Urgent Needs Co-chairs Martha Blue and Anna Saunders delivered 11 boxes of bed linens to SafeHaven’s Fort Worth shelter this month. Jeremy Carroll, SafeHaven VP of Operations (not pictured) and Valerie Salter, SafeHaven Special Events Coordinator were on hand to accept the delivery.
SafeHaven staff members handling the day-to-day operations of the shelter are extremely grateful for this donation, which is our largest goods donation to date. Linens are always in short supply, and this month’s delivery included enough brand new sheets and pillowcases to cover every bed in the Fort Worth facility, plus an extra four dozen pillowcases for good measure. This is the third of our three recent member-inspired projects. In the summer, SOS fulfilled the shelter’s summer wish list, providing enough swim suits, flip-flops, sun screen, bug spray and summer pool toys for each child in residence. This was followed by our members’ generous support of the back-to-school program, supplying the children with new clothes and shoes for school. Our SOS members have always been quick to come to the aid of the women and children at the shelters, and even in challenging economic times have been generous in their support. Many thanks to all our charitable members for being true supporters of SafeHaven. Says May Lee Hafley, SafeHaven President, “Once again, MCSOS members are our heroes!”
