Below are our rotating events that we have annually. Donations and help are always welcome. Please email us at PWNPcharity@gmail.com if you are interested.
Thanksgiving / Cold Medicine& Blanket Drive:
To help our shelters prepare for the increased number of people needing a safe, warm place when the weather is cold, PWNP collects blankets from the community. Preferred blankets are full size and are available to drop off at given points.
Fostering Futures Holiday Surprises:
Each holiday season we remember children in the foster care system by providing Voices for Children/ CASA with nice gifts that help them celebrate the season just like other kids.
The Valentine’s Day Chocolate Box Challenge:
After the holiday season giving subsides, shelters notoriously run low on basic toiletry supplies like body wash, shampoo and feminine products. PWNP takes this time to do a community drive to gather these essential supplies. In addition to basic needs, we add a meaningful touch to support emotional needs and surprise shelter residents with chocolate boxes on Valentine’s Day to spread hope and joy .
Mother’s Day Surprises:
On Mother’s Day, each mom in the shelter is given a manicure (with tip included) and a goodie bag to remind them how special they are and how much their job as a mom is valued. This is an unexpected surprise which is made all the more sweet with a person note from a mom to a mom.
As our Fostering Futures kids transition to adulthood and graduate, PWNP likes to send them into their bright future with a gift to use on essential items.
Kids Helping Kids Triathlon:
Our largest fundraising event, PWNP’s Kids Helping Kids Triathlon is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together and encourage our children to respond to the needs of other children. This fun, mini-tri provides the experience of a real triathlon, challenging kids only to their own personal best and a great time. Ending with our Beach Ball Bash, this event raises needed funds to help children at Grassroots and Sarah’s Hope shelters go back to school with style and pride with new shoes, backpacks and essential supplies.
