Summer Wish List

UPDATE: So many of you have generously answered our call for donations for the women at Calvary. We are still in need of the items listed below, but we wanted to share a note from one of our case managers, Stephanie:

“As a case manager at Calvary, I get to witness the amazing things your donations do for women at Calvary. Anita recently moved into her own apartment after living at Calvary for a year. Your donations gave Anita a fresh start.

She was able to start her new life with brand new household items and because she was given these things she could stretch her earnings farther. They made her more comfortable in her new home and she was able to feel good about herself again.
 
Your donations and contributions empower women at Calvary to regain their sense of dignity and respect. Thanks for all you do.”
