We are asking attendees to help with our community service project by supporting the women at Demeter House, which provides substance abuse and mental health treatment for adult (18+) women, including those who are pregnant or raising a young child. They are in need of journals (for writing in), adult coloring books and art supplies like markers, gel pens, colored pencils, and paper.
Thanks for thinking of them!
