Hope Gardens, the Ebell Grantee which serves homeless women and their children, also houses 24 senior women who are allowed to live on the Sylmar-based campus permanently. In June, Hope Gardens approached The Ebell and asked if Ebell members would be able to donate specific gifts, which had been particularly asked for by each of these 24 senior women, in personally written greetings cards.
So The Ebell did what it always does… it came through! The price of each gift was set at no more than $25, but each gift was to be wrapped attractively and include a personal card from the donor. Gifts ranged from cooking and cleaning products, sheets and towels, to a blender and even a DVD player.
We thank all those members who provided gifts and wrapped them so beautifully:
