Last year, generous HBA members donated boxes and boxes of toiletry items to our non-profit service provider, Goose Hollow Family Shelter. This year we will be helping Clackamas Women’s Services with some of their biggest needs at their domestic violence emergency shelter.
“The CWS emergency shelter provides a safe place for women and children fleeing their homes due to domestic violence, sexual assault/abuse, elder abuse, stalking or sexual trafficking or exploitation. The shelter and new annex houses up to 13 individuals and/or families (approximately 27 people at any given time) in a family-style environment where each individual or family unit has their own room and everyone shares the bathrooms, kitchen and communal spaces like living, dining, computer and children’s play rooms.”
Donations will be accepted at the HBA/HBF offices at 15555 SW Bangy Rd in Lake Oswego and at 2013 HBA Builders Ball on November, 22.
