Thanks to Our Community
The Soroptimist International of Rancho Cordova and Gold River arrived at our office with a car trunk full of care packages for residents in our Safehouse and other survivors. The packages included personal care items, notepads and stuffed animals for their children. They also donated art supplies and books for the children as well as small purses and clutches for the moms. Thank you for your generous donation!
Students enrolled in the UC Davis Ecology Graduate Program came up with a clever and unique way to raise funds for WEAVE. They hosted a silent auction of costumes which raised over $1,700 to support WEAVE and the survivors we serve. Thank you for selecting WEAVE!
We want to recognize Dignity Health for hosting a Mother’s Day drive for our Safehouse residents.

We can’t thank Sutter Health’s Office of General Council enough for their generous donation of 75 self care kits packed full of items for both children and adults.

We want to thank the Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Elk Grove and their current group of confirmation students who made over 50 comfort care bundles of cozy blankets and cuddly stuffed animals for children at our Safehouse. We’re so glad that a presentation from our Prevention & Education department sparked such kindness and thoughtfulness.
A huge thank you to Sister Circle Blessings for sharing the love of Valentine’s Day with WEAVE!

In addition they also provided cake and cookie mixes so there were plenty of sweet goodies to bake and share.
