Each year, our branch supports the chosen Gateway to Equity Award winner. This year we  are supporting the Home of the Sparrow. (Home of the Sparrow Website)Our first project is the Pick a Coat campaign.

Megan Ervine, (right), Volunteer Coordinator at Home of the Sparrow, our branch’s Gateway to Equity awardee for this year, admires the fall themed “Pick A Coat” Tree that the Community Outreach Committee (from left) Mimi Jones, Peggy Staarman and Eva Kaufmann, created to enable AAUW members at the September meeting to select a woman or child for whom to purchase a winter coat. Contact Eva, Peggy or Mimi to make a selection if you were unable to attend the meeting. The committee is hoping to donate 40 coats. Donations will be accepted from members who do not wish to purchase coats themselves.
