Who are these smiling women? Each of them received scholarships from AAUW San Jose last year. You can help bring smiles and financial assistance to another group of deserving women by shopping at the Holiday Boutique on Saturday November 15. Your purchases will support the Local Scholarship Fund and give you a head start with your holiday shopping. You’ll find gift baskets, hand-crafts, baked goods and much more at our Headquarters at 1165 Minnesota Ave (next door to the Willow Glen Library). Open from 9 am to 3 pm. Please come and bring your friends! Read about the Holiday Boutique and more in the November BONFIRE.
Imagine the smile on a disadvantaged or homeless teen’s face then they receive an unexpected holiday gift. Get a head start and begin holiday shopping early by contributing to Gifts for Teens and help AAUW San Jose make this scenario a reality! Visit the Gifts for Teens web site to learn more about this project and to make a donation. Make a difference in the life of a teenager this holiday season. www.gifts4teens.org Volunteers are needed to fill over 1000 gift bags and totes in December. To volunteer contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a date and time to help.
AAUW San Jose’s Community Action Project, Neighbors Helping Neighbors, kicks off its annual Warm Hearts project. From November to March NHN collects new or gently used warm clothing (hats, scarves, gloves, jackets, sweaters, and underwear – large to extra large sizes preferred) as well as blankets and sleeping bags. The project benefits the homeless clients of Santa Maria Urban Ministry in San Jose. To donate, contact AAUW San Jose at email@example.com. here.
