Day of Service a Success!

Today was Make A Difference Day and clubwomen from 200 clubs accross the state donated assorted items to the 3 Veteran's homes located in New Jersey!
The items in the photo went to the Menlo Park location.

Pictured are Clubwomen from 10 clubs in the Highlands District who gathered at the Roxbury Senior Citizen building to collect items from the 25 clubs in the District.
What a great service project!

We filled 3 vans alone with items such as sweatshirts, sweatpants, socks, hats and toiletry items.
