Committee members Elaine Leff, Jessie Pearlman, Sharon Billone, Margie Bauer and Elisa Lazarus put together 100 gift bags for parents staying at Ronald Mc Donald House while their children are being treated at Children’s Hospital.

We are collecting toiletries and gift items for Ronal McDonald House and SOVA.

3 Study Groups: “The Happy Wanderers”; “Lunch/Salon” and “Day Time Trotters” donated lovely gift items brought during their annual planning meetings. Those gift items were donated to Conejo Valley Charities.

We delivered toys, food and gift bags to Ronald Mc Donald House during this holiday season. House staff, volunteers and parents of children were welcoming and very appreciative. We enjoyed a heartfelt-delightful and fun afternoon with lots of hugs and kisses.
