NJWIT Peer Group - Wrapping and Stuffing for a Cause!
December 3, 2014At the December meeting of the NJWIT Peer Group ( Northern NJ) hosted at the home of Marilyn Shuffler, Dale Swisher, Joan Knauer, Joan Prince, Gloria Rubin, Judy Glick, Gwynne McConkey, Cheryl Katzman, Lanie Gastman and Carla Loffredo engaged in helping others during this holiday time.
As a participant in the holiday giving program "All Wrapped Up" administered by the Volunteer Center of Bergen County, Gwynne McConkey was assigned a family of five. She purchased the gifts for the individual members and we spent part of the meeting wrapping gifts for the family.
On another front, Dale Swisher created the base for cats beds which will be sent to a cat sanctuary in Florida where she has been an active volunteer in providing care for these less fortunate cats. Beds will also be delivered to the Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge in Oakland. We “stuffed” and sewed the converted sweatshirts which made delightful beds for the cats.
A good time was had by all!!!
