The Fresh Start Project
Thursday, November 1, 2012

Thank you to everyone who contributed toiletries to the Fresh Start Project as part of the Fifth Annual Trailblazers Luncheon in November.

The Women’s Fund collected nine boxes of items to benefit local women and children who are victims of domestic violence.

The donations were given to:

Equinox (Albany County) Unity House (Rensselaer County)
DVRC (Saratoga County) Safe House (Schenectady County)

The following items were collected:

  • skin and body care products – including hotel and store sample sizes
  • make-up
  • razors
  • toothpaste
  • deodorant

Even if you couldn’t attend the Trailblazers Awards Luncheon, donations were accepted at the Glen Sanders Mansion, 1 Glen Ave., Scotia, NY (in the lobby near the ballroom entrance) on Nov. 1 from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm.

Thank you also to The Women’s Fund Volunteer Committee, which organized the collection.
