Hope House - June 2021
TSW went shopping for an Adopt-a-Kitchen for Hope House, a new Sedona shelter for homeless families with children that is projected to open this fall. There are usually 20-30+ homeless children attending school in the Sedona-Oak Creek Unified School District. The goal of Hope House is to provide services, support, temporary housing, meals and transition programs to help homeless families move into permanent housing. Thanks to great participation by our women over $700 worth of kitchen items were donated! Hope House was delighted with the results and are using our effort as a model for the other rooms they want "adopted."
TSW received the following Thank You from Gale Lothrop, Secretary, Hope House Board of Directors.
Dear Sedona Women,
A big Thank You! to the many women & friends who volunteered in March and April to work at the See’s Candy Wagon, St. Andrew’s Community Dinner and the Oak Creek Canyon Clean-up. All were helpful to the community and tons of fun! Special thanks to the leaders of those events, Marilyn Bealfield and her hubby, Mark, and Pam Delay. Without people like this stepping up to lead projects we couldn’t do all the wonderful service projects TSW undertakes!
The Sedona Women and The Sedona Community Food Bank Joined forces again to staff the New See's Candy Wagon for the Fall & Holiday Seasons.
Holiday Cards for Giving Angel Clients - The Sedona Women helped The Giving Angels write and distribute 600 holiday cards to its clientele - area seniors who are at or below poverty level. Because the normal gift bags couldn't be distributed this year, this was one way the Angels brought holiday cheer to its folks.
The Verde Valley Sanctuary - The Sedona Women helped make this Christmas special for the families living there. The Sanctuary offers a safe haven for victims of family violence and sexual assault, providing shelter, community outreach, legal advocacy and education and prevention. The administrators gave TSW a list of children’s toys, games, warm clothes & gift cards requests that made the holiday much brighter for the youngest residents.

Oak Creek Watershed Clean Up October 13th
14 Sedona Women Volunteers delivered 240 gift candles to Verde Valley Caregivers' 'Neighbors' in Sedona and Village of Oak Creek. The angel candles purchased by VVCG included a note 'Thinking of you' and went to many seniors who have been quarantined for months. Recipients were very appreciative and our volunteers felt it was a worthwhile experience. Thank you volunteers!

lunch to 40 veterans and their guests on Friday, January 10 at the

appreciated by all who participated. Thank you to MaryAnn Livingstone
