The Lavender Hearts Committee was formed as an outreach arm of the Lavender Friends Club in SCLH. All projects or helping activities are done in the name of Lavender Friends. We have employed (a. progressive dinners, (b. parking lot sales, (c. raffles at potlucks, etc. to fund our projects. All this takes planning and time to organize and complete.
If you are interested in joining this rewarding group email Marie@lavenderfriends.com for more information.
Our favorite charity is Stand Up Placer. It attempts to protect women and children from abusive environments with safe, clean homes, food/shelter and classes teaching things like self esteem and parenting. They offer the opportunity to select clothes for job interviews and court appearances though their thrift shop in Auburn. Their website is http://standupplacer.org.
We plan on buying meals for the safe homes at least once during the holiday season. We will be supporting the Sacramento Woman's Chorus in their fundraising concert in October. Their website is http://sacrametowomanschorus.com
Last month we created eight themed-baskets for raffle by the Sacramento Women's Chorus. The raffle baskets raised funds for the organization's operational expenses. The cost of the chorus performances often exceed the revenues as the chorus makes ticket prices affordable to the general public, and sometimes donates the entire ticket sale proceeds to local charities.
