“We really want to be a part of our community and give back, that is something that we really stand by. This organization is doing so many amazing things, we hope we can be a small part in what you are doing and help to change lives. Your VVS team goes above and beyond to help these families and it couldn’t be more special. Getting involved is the best way to show your appreciation!!!” (Hideaway House)
“Operation St. Nick volunteers work directly with the staff of VVS to determine what gifts are needed and desired by the residents. Next, volunteers raise the funds and purchase gifts and stocking stuffers, which are delivered on Christmas Eve. A few of the residents get “adopted” by locals, and Operation St. Nick does massive fundraising to provide the majority of the brand-new clothing and gifts.” (Operation St. Nick, Walker Marchal)
“We understand and are very aware of the needs of women and children in shelters. Christmas and holidays are not always joyful to those in struggling life situations and if the Sisterhood can provide a smile, even momentarily, with a gift to remind them that they are important and precious then a small gesture has been rewarded.” (Sisterhood Connection Foundation)
“We enjoy giving to VVS because the folks in the situation they have found themselves did not ask to be dependent on others, but sometimes it is a necessity. Our membership has the desire to help others.” (Sedona Elks Lodge)
“With the goal of providing quilts to local charities, we expanded the special interest group within our guild to gather donations of fabric and make more quilts; it’s called “scrap rats.“ We enjoy being a part of bringing warmth and comfort to those women and families, and we hope our quilts help them through the trauma being experienced.” (Quail Country Quilters Guild)
