January Meeting (January 13, 2014): Giving, Getting, and Giving Back

Introducing for the first time ever – HMN of Rochester’s White Elephant Swap! Bring an item from home that you may not use; or have no use for (new or preloved), wrap and re-gift it to another member…Draw a number from a basket, once your number is called, chose a gift from the pile. Once all the gifts are selected, feel free to trade with another. But, the fun doesn’t stop there!

In addition to giving up something old and gaining something new, we are collecting items to help support Safe Journey. Safe Journey is a non-residential resource and support center located in Fairport, NY, that serves women rebuilding their lives after domestic abuse and violence. Safe Journey provides safety planning, individual counseling, community resource coordination, resettlement support, lifeskills training, community and teen violence/abuse prevention education, and more.

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love. ~Lao Tzu
