In 2022, the Community Outreach Committee also hosted a Clothing Swap that raised funds and enabled them to donate many clothing items to Hands of a Friend to support victims of domestic abuse in Genesis House; provided non-perishable healthy snacks for at-risk youth served at the Amado Youth Center; and hosted a teachers’ supply shower for the elementary school teachers at Continental School.
The generosity of members and Quail Creek residents to help the less fortunate is greatly appreciated.
HONOR FLIGHT — (Jan. 20, 2023) Many thanks to those who wrote the 640 letters of appreciation to the 60 Native American veterans who went on the Honor Flight to Washington, DC earlier this month. The veterans were most appreciative of your words of gratitude. The next Honor Flight that will be open to all veterans is scheduled for May 2023 (check the website Homepage after the 19th each month as updates often become available). The “Mail Call” letters given to the veterans on their flight home are often cherished by the veterans, many of whom believe their service was not appreciated by their fellow Americans.
SCHOOL TEACHERS’ SUPPLY SHOWER
AUGUST 20, 2022 — Thanks to the generosity of Club members and many Quail Creek residents, the Community Outreach Committee held a very successful shower for the 21 elementary school teachers at Continental School on August 17.
Each teacher received two large bags, one with a variety of school supplies and the other with more practical items — Kleenex, paper towels, copy paper, and wipes. They were served carrot cake and Arnold Palmers while they celebrated.
This was the first time an outside group had ever “showered” them with gifts and the teachers really appreciated it. They were very surprised at the variety and number of gifts they received.
