Lori Holman gave a presentation on Hope Unlimited for the Sept. 6 meeting of Grace Lutheran LWML.
The organization provides services for five counties: Allen, Anderson, Neosho, Wilson and Woodson. Their mission is working to end sexual and domestic violence through services, community education and prevention. Programs include emergency shelter for men, women and children at any time of day; outreach programs; a child exchange and parenting center; and child advocacy center. Although they receive some funding, most of their expenses are covered by fundraising or donations. Volunteers are always welcome. They have a Wish List on Amazon.com. Donations can be taken to Hope Unlimiteds office at 8 N. Washington. For more information, call 620-365-7566.
New LVML officers are Beth Ringwald, president, Linda Hill, vice president, Kim Kristaly, secretary and Carol Olson, treasurer.
The LWML SEK zone workshop was Sept. 8 at Fort Scott. LWML Sunday will be Oct. 7. Trunk & Treat will take place on Halloween. The annual bazaar/soup sale is Nov. 10.
The next meeting is Oct. 4.
