Wendy Weisbard is another “above and beyond” volunteer, a youth group leader and congregant at Shaare Torah in Gaithersburg. Wendy is always looking for unusual ways to support IW and make our clients feel special. She recently dropped off some gorgeous goodie bags that included pedicure kits for our female clients and equally beautiful bags of baby items for expecting moms at our Interfaith Clothing Center.
And the women of Leisure World came through as they do every year for their annual baby shower to benefit Interfaith Works. These crafty women put together a huge haul of beautiful baby things, many handmade, also for the Clothing Center moms.
Mother’s Day was made special for the residents of our women’s shelter and for moms who are participants in our Hand to Hand safety net program. Both groups were pampered with treats and personal care. Women from Gaithersburg Church of the Nazarene provided a delicious tea at our women’s shelter, and our good friends and neighbors from Salon 4 provided personal care services to our Hand to Hand moms.
Thanks to all the volunteers who bring a sense of caring as you share your time and make that important human connection with those who are struggling.
