We want to thank one of our community partners, Two Men and a Truck, for their continued support and generosity. They kindly donate one free move a month to current clients who need to move out of their homes to a new location. As you can imagine, this can be a very emotional experience, and each and every single mover has demonstrated kindness and a positive attitude to the client. Couple that with their careful handling of items and their efficiency, Two Men and a Truck truly are movers who care.
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!

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.

A huge thank you to Sister Circle Blessings for sharing the love of Valentine’s Day with WEAVE!
