Helping the “Doorstep” Women’s Homeless Shelter

The members of my OES - Eastern Star Chapter in Berkley had been gathering needed supplies and toiletries for the "Doorstep" Women's shelter for Homeless and abused women and children in Highland Park. On April 19, some of us gathered at the Berkley Masonic Temple to put together 100 bags, 50 for adults and 50 for children.  Everyone got a full size towel, washcloth, full size shampoo, deodorant, conditioner, tooth brush, tooth paste, comb, sewing kit, etc etc.  The children's bags including some great toys, coloring books, crayons etc. We delivered them to the shelter the next day and they were so appreciative and thrilled to receive this generous contribution.  This is such a tremendous help to them and a great charitable service project for us.
