United Way’s Women in Philanthropy seeks holiday stockings

From page B3 | December 03, 2012 |

SACRAMENTO – As foster youth in Placerville spend the holidays away from home, local residents can ensure they still have stockings to open through United Way’s Women in Philanthropy. New Morning Youth and Family Services in Placerville, a partner in United Way’s $en$e-Ability project, will distribute the stockings to local foster youth.

“I cannot imagine how lonely it must feel to be removed from your home, especially during the holidays,” said Lisa Watts, chair of United Way’s Women in Philanthropy. “This is a fantastic way to give back during the holiday season and know that your gift will brighten the holidays for a hurting child.”
Residents can provide a $30 donation through yourlocalunitedway.org to purchase a holiday stocking for a foster youth preparing for emancipation. United Way will fill the stockings with blankets donated by Project Linus, socks donated by Macy’s, first-aid kits, snacks, hats, Target gift cards and personal notes.
Donations must be received by 4 p.m. on Dec. 3.
For more information contact Leslie Ortiz at [email protected] or 916-856-3977.
The group also is collecting gifts for Sacramento County’s Gifts From The Heart program, which benefits children in the county’s Child Protective Services. Visit yourlocalunitedway.org to sign up to bring specific gifts.
United Way’s Women in Philanthropy brings women together to foster the future, preparing foster youth for a successful adulthood. A dynamic group of businesswomen, homemakers and community leaders, Women in Philanthropy members raise funds, hold drives and provide trainings focused on helping foster youth rise to their dreams. The group also is a partner in United Way’s $en$e-Ability project, helping foster youth become financially self-sufficient through financial literacy courses and individual development accounts that provide a matched savings program.
