Cancer Care Bags

Cancer Care Bags:
for the Avon Women’s Cancer Center
at Olive View

We create 50 care bags for women who are going through chemotherapy and related treatments at Olive View where most of the patients are on Medicare or have in-sufficient insurance coverage.

In each bag is like a hug from one women to another containing:

Warm hat, Sock and blanket, nail kit, lip gloss and mints, plus a note pad and pen.

Hygiene Bags

Pajama Party and Hygiene bags:
for http://journeyout.org/

For 35 years Journey Out has been fighting for freedom and survival of those whose lives have been destroyed by sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation in Los Angeles.

The price for admission to this event is a pair of NEW women’s pajamas to be given to women who have literally left their old lives behind them with, often, only the clothes on their backs.

To take care of their immediate personal needs we sponsor and create 24 care bags (yearly)

Our Hygiene bags include: soap, Shampoo, conditioner, Nail kits, brush and comb,

Tooth-rush and paste, shaver, menstrual supplies, pad and pens.

Dream It, Be It

DREAM IT BE IT:

Career Support for Girls

As part of the Soroptimists mission on a regional and national level, we support the Dream It Be It program to help girls grow up to be strong, successful, happy adults.

Targeting girls in secondary school who face obstacles to their future success. It provides girls with access to professional role models, career education and the resources to live their dreams.

Locally:  

We sponsor “S” club chapters in 2 of our local high schools. The girls in each create their own agendas and goals which we then help them realize. Past successes have included:

  • Fundraising for breast cancer awareness
  • Sending a representative to the Youth United Nations
  • Feeding the homeless in downtown LA
  • Career day visits from women professional in varied careers
