 The Daughters of Penelope (DOP) are excited about our upcoming Fall events.

 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month as well as Domestic Abuse Awareness Month. The Daughters of Penelope are helping to bring awareness by hosting 2 great events.

 

  On October 15 we will host our annual Coffee in the Pink with all donations going to the Friends Of The Cancer Center. We will have a special guest speaker during coffee hour so please mark your calenders to join us for this event.

 

 October 1-22 the DOP will be collecting items to make hygiene kits to distribute to women seeking refuge from a domestic situation.  A woman is assaulted or beaten every 9 seconds and often leaves home seeking shelter without key essentials.  We are asking for your assistance in collecting items from October 1-22.
