We have officially launched the event page for our HUGE Lil' Sistas Christmas so please go to Empowered Clubhouse on Facebook, click "going", check out all the details (because there are lots), and then see where you can help make this massive Christmas event possible.
Here are their Christmas Wish Lists:
HOLY FAMILY HOME:
1. 26 single bed mattresses
2. 12 ceiling fans
3. 6 laptop computers
4. 1 electric sewing machine
CENTER OF HOPE:
1. 1 commercial coffee machine
They're making a coffee shop to help the girls make a living and to build upon their skills for when they leave the safe home.
2. 20 computer tables
3. 1 standing boxing bag (like a Century Bob)
We're going to make them their very own small boxing training space at their residence, all we need now is the standing bag.
4. 20 wall fans
5. 1 heavy duty washing machine
In addition to trying to play Santa and get their needs met as much as we can, we're also throwing a party at each residence:
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 15 -- party for 26 at Holy Family Home
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 21 -- party for 50 at the Center of Hope
For both parties, we are requesting the following donations:
1. 5 cakes
4. LOTS of wrapped candies (for the pinatas we're making)
5. game prizes -- kids toys, makeup, hair accessories, jewelry, etc.
Honestly, the size of this Christmas event is quite overwhelming and huge, so trust us when we say every thing and any thing helps. Whether it's donating a bit of cash, checking off one of the various items on the Christmas Wish List or simply sharing our event page on Facebook, we appreciate it ALL!!!
