Celebrating Children Committee
The Temecula Valley Woman's Club Celebrating Children Committee was formed in March 2008,
and we've been very busy since the committee's inception!
What We Do
We provide backpacks with school supplies for Koinonia Foster Care Agency, Rancho Damacitas Group Home and Project Touch Homeless Shelter.
We put together "Just for me" bags with pajamas, a blanket, socks and, depending on age, a stuffed animal or book. These are for the kids of Koinonia and Rancho Damacitas when they first come into the foster care system.
We have provided “Welcome Home” baskets for children who have turned 18 and “aged out” of the system, to help them set up housekeeping for themselves.
We created fall baskets for each Group Home at Rancho Damacitas for the rainy days. The baskets include puzzles, candy, movies, fall baking and caramel apple kits.
We also help with a Koinania Breakfast at Christmas time for the children. We provide the table decorations we also bake cookies and provide all the items for the kids to decorate cookies.
We provided Christmas gifts for 52 children at Koinonia and 44 children in Project Touch.
We ask club members to bring in-kind donations to our TVWC General Meeting once a year, bringing items to help the foster care children.
What We Support
Our committee provides volunteers for Rancho Damacitas Group Home. We have assisted them with their fundraisers.
