Las Palomas Restaurant
Come to our luncheon on Tuesday, September 6th at Las Palomas Restaurant, 3201 Bee Caves Road, from 11:15am to 1:00pm (networking time, 11:15-11:45am; program starts at 11:45am) to learn how to get involved with one of our exciting new community service projects.
The guest speaker will be Chiquita Board from the Dream Come True Foundation.
The Dream Come True Foundation (DCTF) looks for people who are determined to break the bonds of poverty and who have already taken positive steps toward their dreams. They then build the bridge to the resources and support necessary to complete the journey from poverty to success.
DCTF is in need of school supplies for children kindergarten through 5th grade. Please feel free to bring school supplies or Target gift cards to purchase school supplies to the luncheon and we will give them to Chiquita for her young families.
Here is a list of suppies that are needed:
Pack notebook paper (college or wide rules)
#2 pencils and multiple black or blue pens
boxes of tissue
box of crayons (24 count)
pocket folders with brads
pair of scissors
colored pencils (12 count)
hand held pencil sharpener
combination lock (master lock brand preferred)
If you would like to donate school supplies or gift cards to purchase supplies, but will not be able to attend the luncheon, there is a drop off box at Amy W.’s house. Please contact NCJW for the address.
