Many have heard of ‘Adopt-A-Highway’ but, we are
asking for supporters in our surrounding community to ‘Adopt-A-Room’
at our women’s shelter. Our goal is to upgrade and create
rooms with a warm, inviting environment for both women and children.
The following items within each room;
- Upgrade the color pallet of (7) rooms with three walls a
neutral color such as a tan paint with (1) accent wall painted
a color to blend with the bedspreads.
- Vinyl wall lettering/or design stickers to ‘stencil’
encouraging words on accent walls.
- Colored bedspreads to match each accent wall.
- Dressers, bedside table and lamp with the durability to
stand up to children on a daily basis.
Your continued support is appreciated. If you have any questions
or wish to sponsor a room, please contact Marilyn at 996-6622.
