Rowan House Wish Book Campaign a Success

Rowan House would like to extend a huge Thank You to everyone who supported our Holiday Wish Campaign.

Between financial and in-kind donations we were able to provide gift and food hampers for 18 women and 23 children in our Out-reach program as well as the 7 women and 10 children who were in shelter on Christmas Day.

The following is a letter written by one of our residents who received a basket:

“Thank you to all the donators out there, for what a joy you brought. There were Christ-mas gifts placed under the tree for everyone here thanks to all of you. There were mittens, socks and hats you see, even robes and scarves you brought. The bags and baskets were full of all the good things women could use. There were bubble bath creams and purses for them. Even the children had their fun with all the toys that were bought. I made Christmas dinner; turkey and ham, stuffing as well—all the trimmings. It was a joy. We really thank all you donators out there for the joys that you do bring. God bless, happy New Year and many, many more!!”
