NCJW Chanukah Party
Date(s) - Thu, Dec 14, 2017
The NCJW Chanukah Party is Thursday, December 14th at 7:30pm at a home in Northwest Hills. Location will be given when you RSVP.
Delicious latkes, desserts, and beverages will be served and there will be time to visit with old and new friends. The community is invited, but an RSVP is required by December 11th to firstname.lastname@example.org.
NCJW is supporting The Austin Diaper Bank and invites guests to bring diapers to donate. The Austin Diaper Bank supports needs from newborns to the elderly. The greatest need is for baby diapers size Newborn, 4, 5, and 6, as well as adult diapers in sizes XL/XXL. Most adult clients request underwear or pull-up style diapers.
Austin Diaper Bank is on a mission to empower families and individuals throughout Central Texas by providing a reliable and adequate source of personal hygiene products. It was established in 2013 in a response to the diaper need in Central Texas. One in four families will experience diaper need at some point in their lives. Each month they provide over 20,000 diapers and wipes to partner agencies for families in Central Texas. Currently, Austin Diaper Bank is only covering half of the need in our area. Food stamps and assistance programs do not cover diapers and with a growing poverty rate the number of households who find themselves in ‘diaper need’ are increasing. Austin Diaper Bank aims to serve over 5,000 families each month with clean diapers so they can thrive.
Alternatively, guests may go to Austin Diaper Bank’s website to make a donation. Checks can also be made out payable to Austin Diaper Bank at the time of the Chanukah Party.
Holly McDaniel, Executive Director of Austin Diaper Bank, will be attending and speaking briefly at our party. Holly brings to Austin Diaper Bank more than 15 years of leadership experience at several nonprofits in both Austin and California, focusing on business development, nonprofit management and donor development. Most recently, McDaniel served as director of development at Art Alliance Austin. During her three years with the organization, she managed and led the development department and was part of an executive team that guided Art Alliance Austin through a complete overhaul of programming, outreach and business relationships. Previously, she was director of individual giving and philanthropy at KMFA, 89.5, the classical public radio station in Austin. While living in California, McDaniel served Polytechnic School in Pasadena as director of its annual fund, and was special events manager for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) in Los Angeles. McDaniel earned a bachelor’s degree in art history from Occidental College in Los Angeles.
