Lots is happening at Blossom and we want to keep you in the loop. This e-news is for adults who support our project with their time, talents or treasures. Each girl who comes to Blossom has her own unique set of needs and challenges. We need your help to encourage, support and guide our girls. Thank you for being part of our team as we watch girls blossom into thriving young women.
We had three families generously donate bicycles to us so the girls can get around town or just go for a good old bike ride.
We have scheduled a workshop for Thurs., Oct.15th with a representative from Damsels in Defense. Their mission is to to equip, empower and educate all woman on personal safety. It will be held at the Blossom house at 7 pm and is open to all foster girls ages 17-21.
Calling all rakers!
Leaves are falling all around our home and we could use some help getting things raked, trimmed and ready for winter. Join us on Sun., Oct. 4th from 1-4.
Do you have books or board games appropriate for young adults that are gathering dust? We'd love to take them off your hands.Email us and we'll arrange to pick up.
Spreading the Word
We've been busy spreading the word about Blossom. In the last two week social workers from Sac County, Independent Living Program workers from Nevada County, and a representative from Volunteers of America toured the house. We spoke at the monthly meeting of the Soroptimists of the American River and met with Mercy Ministries in Lincoln to share our program.
