Advocates for Children
Mission Statement - The Advocates for Children committee supports children and their needs in the community.
Claudia Thunnell & Pat Farmer - Co-Chairs
Every year is diﬀerent, and this year (2020) certainly has shown our Temecula Valley Woman’s Club how to diversify and take into account many immediate needs for the Children of our Community. From mid-May to mid-June, over $2,100 in goods were donated by the TVWC members to the Advocates for Children Committee. These items were delivered June 17, 2020 during pandemic shutdowns.
Advocates for Children committee continue to support seven children's agencies in the Temecula Valley - Oak Grove, Safe Family Justice, Koinonia, Project Touch, Calicinto Ranch, BACA and Rancho Damacitis, including pies for Calicinto Ranch for Thanksgiving.
Safe Family Justice children received books, blankets, gift cards for Zoom trivia nights’ awards, games, puzzles and face masks.
Project Touch children received diapers, wipes, baby blankets, shampoos, lotions and soaps, along with games, books, twin mattress pads (as they have added over 190 beds to their inventory during the pandemic), two porta-cribs and gift cards for shoes and/or cholthes.
Oak Grove received a sewing machine allowing students to make their own masks!
Of course, we hope to continue to provide school supplies and backpacks, as well as more “Just 4 provide school Me” bags, if needed during the pandemic.
