“Do small things with great love.”
Often we do not know what to do to help those in need. In examining our own lives and learning to be grateful for even the smallest blessings we have, we can come up with a way to help.
The realization that not every woman can afford feminine hygiene products breaks my heart. Most of us have never had to go without ourselves or been in a situation where we cannot provide them to our daughters. A great number of women in our community have been.
Project Love the Ladies Lent Event was conceived to fill that need. Three drop off times were scheduled at various locations around Bloomington-Normal. Women of our community stepped up to the challenge and provided feminine products for the women in our community.
Thank you to everyone who dropped off donations (especially when the temperature was 18 degrees!)
Pads are the most needed item. The next time you are dropping a donation to the Clare House you may want to include some. Such a small thing is a huge blessing to a woman in need.
