After too many months of quarantine and Zoom meetings and programs, TWOQC is finally opening up to in-person events! I am so amazed at all of the work that went into keeping our membership engaged. We are all excited to begin to return to some normalcy and seeing more of you in person. And, we hope new woman residents will consider joining TWOQC and getting involved in activities and committees.
SAN XAVIER SCHOOL BOOK DRIVE = SUCCESS!
Once again, The Women of Quail Creek and our community have been overwhelmed at the outpouring of love and support of the San Xavier Mission School book drive.
In just three short weeks, 442 books and $600 were donated to promote literacy and foster a love of reading in students who often do not have many books or other reading material in their homes. We will be able to send three new books home with each child and have books to spare for those who have not been in class due to COVID.
♥ The books will be distributed on May 21st at the school!
Each child will receive a colorful tote bag, 2 bookmarks made by Quail Creek’s “Scrappers and Stampers”, and a personal note from committee members.
The money that was donated will be designated for a book fund that the San Xavier teachers will use to purchase more books for their students at their discretion when classes resume in September. Update (5/31/21): PHOTOS
CONNECTING WITH OUR COMMUNITY
HOMELESS VETERANS — Thanks to all of you who so generously donated clothing for the VA and Women Warriors last month. It took two cars to get everything delivered.
The Substance Abuse program at the VA hospital has put out a desperate plea for wall calendars—any year will work as long as they have interesting pictures. They use calming pictures for veterans who are coming out of delirium and other pictures for their craft projects. Update (5/31/21): Thank you to all who donated on Wed., May 26th.
