Last week, our Philanthropy Team hosted a very successful Hugs Pillows workshop and luncheon. In just one hour, 18 volunteers assembled 300 Hugs packages that included hand-made colorful, heart-shaped pillows packed with small stuffed animals, stickers, activity books & crayons. Some of the pillows were slated for two elementary schools and some for a pediatric clinic serving low-income families, once that facility is again able to accept them. We also assembled more than 200 new books for young readers and an assortment of small toys that will also be donated to schools. After the workshop, our members enjoyed lunch outside and the opportunity to spend some much-needed time together with very dear friends.
