The Chelan-Douglas Republican Women of North Central Washington did not let COVID 19 slow down their efforts to aid fellow citizens through the Federation's Caring For America Project. The women generously donated $732 worth of office and cleaning supplies to the "Haven of Hope" a 21-bed homeless shelter for women and children. Checks were also presented to "Serve Wenatchee," a nonprofit religious charity, in the sum of $700 for their "Clothes for the Classroom" project that seeks to completely clothe (shoes, socks, shirt, and pants) 1000 children for school. The Seattle USO, Sea-Tac Airport, one of the largest in the country, benefited from our saving of personal hygiene items for over 18 months. Dee Drewry, past state president, delivered 3 full boxes totaling 1028 items (shampoo, lotions, toothpaste, brushes, soap, shaving items, etc) to be distributed to our active-duty military members and families that spend many hours and possibly days between flights. The 70 members of CDRW have consistently assisted multiple nonprofit agencies in the 2-county region for many years.

 In October and November, we gathered newborn clothing, toys, blankets, socks, and board books for our pro-life clinic, Real Options. They make up layettes for their clients who complete prenatal and parenting classes among a host of other services. Estimated value of the 92 items is $400

Thank you all for a terrific year of giving to so many worthy non-profit organizations. We donated over $3800 worth of materials and money to area non-profits and $900 to the USO in 2021. Republican women are truly the life of the Party.
