Spreading Joy: A Recap of Our Care Package Assembly Event for International Women's Day

March 13, 2024

We are thrilled to share the heartwarming success of our inaugural Care Package Assembly event held in honor of International Women's Day! With the help of our incredible clients, we embarked on a mission to spread love and support to women in need, partnering with the esteemed organization, Rosie's Place – the first women-only homeless shelter in the United States.

This year marks Rosie’s Place 50th anniversary! To commemorate this milestone, we set a goal to assemble 50 care packages and are pleased to report we surpassed our goal! The care packages we assembled were filled with the following essentials:

  • Toothpaste, toothbrush, Floss
  • Deodorant, Soap, Body Wash
  • Lip Balm, Face Cream, Hand Lotion
  • Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Hand Sanitizer & Wipes
  • Target Gift Card

Here's a recap of the event that left a lasting imprint of compassion.

Building Bonds and Making a Difference:

The event kicked off with an atmosphere buzzing with excitement and purpose. Each care package was meticulously assembled, reflecting our dedication to ensure that the recipients felt supported.  

Our clients worked enthusiastically together, forming bonds, and fostering a sense of community as we worked together towards a common goal. Laughter and conversations filled the air, creating a space where everyone felt empowered to make a difference.

 

Partnering with Rosie's Place:

“Rosie” is no one in particular, yet all the women the non-profit serves. The name, Rosie’s Place, was picked because it held no connotations and sounded like it could be a women’s coffee house or your favorite aunt’s kitchen. Since its inception in 1974, Rosie's Place has been a beacon of hope for countless women, offering vital services ranging from shelter and meals to advocacy and education.

 

Celebrating International Women's Day:

As we celebrated International Women's Day, our event served as a poignant reminder of the resilience, strength, and compassion embodied by women everywhere. Together, we demonstrated the transformative power of collective action by making a tangible difference in the lives of those who need it most. It was a testament to the power of unity and empathy in effecting positive change!

 

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our SMB community for your support and interest in helping us give back to those in need. By volunteering your time, you have touched the lives of many, reaffirming the spirit of empathy and community that lies at the heart of our organization.
