Visions of Hope Art Auction
Women'sGift presented a check for $6,500 to the McKinney-Vento liaisons in Lane County Schools, with all the funds supporting homeless children in the community. More than 150 pieces of art were donated by local artists and community members. Local business donated food, beer and wine, and The Oregon Art Alliance donated their space for this event. Thanks to all who helped make this event so successful.


Scrabble Tournament
The Women'sGift Scrabble Tournament, held in February raises approximately $1,000 annually to support local women and children at risk. A beautifully prepared lunch, followed by a fun afternoon of play offers both novices and experts the opportunity to help others and have fun at the same time. Past recipients include The Child Center, Shelter Care, and SASS (Sexual Assault Support Services).


Backpack Roundup
Providing a backpack full of school supplies is daunting for a child or family living on the edge. Not having supplies immediately puts children at risk of failure in school. Women'sGift has provided approximately 150 filled backpacks since beginning in 2007. Recipients include students at Brattain Elementary School (Springfield), River Road/Rio del Camino Elementary School (Eugene 4J), the Springfield School District, Bethel School District, and Kelly Middle School (Eugene).
