Got an update from Tom Henry about some recent and upcoming projects of Steiner Cares
The Steiner Cares Dress for Success Clothing Drive was a True Success!
Our community came together for an overwhelming response. We are still receiving donations, but the latest totals are over 140 suits (many of which still had tags on them!) and more than 300 additional clothing items including dresses, blouses, shoes, make-up, and accessories.
Items that cannot be used by Dress for Success will go to the Arc of the Capital Area, a 501 (c)(3) organization, which provides services to adults and children with developmental disabilities. http://www.arcofthecapitalarea.org/
Thank you to everyone who helped out, especially:
Heather Bland-Ho of Conquer Your Chaos Organizing
4 Sons’ Quality Cleaners
Jennifer Swenson and the Shire Ridge gang
John and Sharmae Erickson
We are working on scheduling our next campaign and will announce details on the Steiner Cares website.
Please join us for these upcoming volunteer opportunities:
· Steiner Cares has partnered with The Summit at Northwest Hills (located @ 2222 and Mesa Drive), an assisted-living facility for the retired and elderly. We are seeking volunteers for visits on a monthly basis for game nights, birthday celebrations and other recreational events to provide some fellowship and cheer for the residents. Those interested can contact Greg or Lynne Stamps at 512-266-3114 for more information.
· Steiner Cares has also partnered with the Texas Baptist Children’s Home http://www.tbch.org/ (located @ Hwy 79 and Mays in Round Rock). We are scheduled to work on the campus during the morning of May 10, from 9-12:30, to help to beautify the campus while landscaping and working to enhance the overall décor of one of the campus’ cottages.
· Please mark your calendars: The second annual Steiner Cares’ back-to-school clothing drive, for less-fortunate area children, is planned for mid-August. Details will be posted on our website.
Please go to www.steinercares.org for updates and to volunteer. Thank you for helping!
