Thanks a million!

wsd5What a wonderful day for the Holland community! Around 160 volunteers–a record since Women’s Service Day began–showed up to accomplish tasks and participate in fundraising activities for the 14th annual Women’s Service Day on October 1. In the morning and afternoon, they helped a number of nonprofits in the area, including:

Center for Women in Transition and Girls on the Run
Eighth Day Farm
Holland Rescue Mission, including Stepping Stones Day Care at the Family Hope Ministry Center
Kids’ Food Basket
Lakeshore Habitat for Humanity
My House Ministry
My Sister’s House II
Nestlings Diaper Bank
Pathways, MI
Ready for School
The Salvation Army
Westcore Neighbors

During lunch, they contributed to a raffle fundraiser, raising $2,400 for Pathways MI. They also donated 10 boxes of personal and household items for women coming from shelter, rehab, or re-entry programs to independent living at one of two homes run by My House Ministry in Holland.

Stay tuned for the full story–with photos–to see all they accomplished in just one day! For now, here’s a peek at some of the crews at work.
