SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL OF MODESTO SUPPLIES FACEMASKS
Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment. We support Local Service Agencies as well as our Federation and Global Organization.
At our latest Board Meeting (done through Zoom), we discussed how we might help some of the less fortunate women in our local community. We then contacted Redwood Family Center and the Haven to ask about their need for facemasks. We are supplying over 50 masks to Redwood Family Center; this includes adult size masks for the women and smaller masks for their children. We are still in contact with Haven regarding their needs.
Our Board wanted to find a way that we could support our mission in this critical time. This was the brainchild of our Past President, Ruth Bright…thank you Ruth! We hope this helps in some small way to protect the health of these women and their children!
Soroptimist supports our Community efforts to protect ourselves and others from the spread of COVID-19. Please protect yourself and your children…shelter in when at all possible, wash your hands, where PPE if available and keep you 6 foot social distancing. Together we can weather this storm.
