It may be nothing more than a hospital gown.

Donations of new clothing items give survivors the dignity of proper clothing in the aftermath of an assault.

New items needed for women and men in a variety of sizes (ages 13+) include:

Solid crew-nect t-shirts, sweat pants, underwear, socks, flip-flops/disposable slippers, winter scarves, gloves, hats. Also toothbrushes, sanitary pads and reusable grocery bags.

WFP will be collecting these donated items before the film screening.

Women & Retirement Savings
Jan

1:00 PM13:00

Women & Retirement Savings

Women are more likely to work in part-time jobs that don’t qualify for a retirement plan. And working women are more likely than men to interrupt their careers to take care of family members. Therefore, they work fewer years and contribute less toward their retirement, resulting in lower lifetime savings.

Planning and saving for retirement may seem like goals that are far in the future. Yet saving, especially for retirement, should start early and continue throughout your lifetime.

This timely workshop, hosted by the Department of Labor, will help you Choose carefully where you put your money and learn how to improve your investment returns.
