Easter Collection for Harbor HouseCohen
Apr 17, 2014
As a project for Easter this year, Professional Plating asked Team Members to donate items for the Harbor House in Appleton. Harbor House is a safe haven for women and children who have made the difficult decision to get out of a bad situation, domestic violence. Many times these families are forced to leave with little more than the clothes on their backs!
Our collcection efforts focused on needs of youth and teens, as these older children are often overlooked, losing out to donations of daily hygiene needs and diapers, formula, etc. for babies.
We had a nice turnout of socks, underwear and outdoor games and activities for the kids to enjoy as the weather gets warmer. There were also puzzle books and hand held games, along with night lights that can make the transition to a new, temporary home, more comfortable. The monetary donations we received were used to purchase Subway gift cards which Harbor House uses as birthday gifts for teens.
Thanks again to our team for helping out these families in need!
