“The Perfect Wrap” will be on display and available for purchase at the November 14 program. Be thinking about how many you might need for gifts as well as one for yourself! If you are providing a gift bag to a YOTO student you might consider a fleece wrap for their bag. This would be great for them to wear back and forth to classes and will easily fit in their backpack.
- Thanks to Sue Obremski and Rena Craine for successfully selling many of the wraps at the Fall Festival this past week!
- All proceeds are donated to YOTO. If you are not familiar with YOTO please check out their website here: «Youth On Their Own».
- View a video clip of Sue demonstrating different ways to wear the wraps: «Demo».
Questions about the wraps? Email: «email@example.com».
Bring a gift bag with items to fill the sleigh to be delivered to female youth that are on their own this holiday season.
Cards with a name and age will be available at the Monday program. Some suggested gifts might be a $20 Wal-Mart card, lap size blanket, backpack, school supplies, toiletries or other types of gift cards. Please let us know if you would like to leave a gift bag but won’t be able to attend the luncheon. For questions please contact «Yoto@womenqc.com».
