Rooms of Hope for Samantha
We are so proud to have worked with Rooms of Hope to help complete a backyard Hawaiian Oasis makeover for Samantha. The girls (and moms!) did an amazing job of fundraising over the last couple of years and we are incredibly proud of the result! A huge THANK YOU to everyone involved…please keep Samantha in your thoughts and prayers as she is still battling her illness.

The girls celebrated Kindness Week by creating encouraging notes and signs.
The girls gathered donations for a local crisis nursery.
The girls sang “Happy Birthday” to a resident at elder care facility who just turned 87.
The group once again made hundreds of sandwiches for a homeless shelter in Concord. So proud of the girls’ commitment to helping those in need!
The girls went shopping at Target to buy toys and gifts for children in need. The girls held a fundraiser to raise money for the gifts and had a great time shopping for the kids’ Christmas presents!
The girls organized a book drive for the benefit of local Coronado School District. They collected over 2200 books! They also made beautiful handmade bookmarks to encourage kids to read and learn. Norah Moore, from Coronado, said “Those girls should be very proud of themselves. They made something awesome happen today! Please accept our thanks and gratitude.”

The girls held a book drive for the benefit of Coronado School students. They also created beautiful handmade bookmarks to distribute along with the books.
These wonderful girls packed up food for kids in Haiti. Here is what one of the leaders wrote about the day: “The teamwork was amazing but more amazing was the girls packed over 1,000 meals during the time they were there. Very fulfilling. The girls even negotiated (and were allowed) to pack that last one (“one more” is famous term in our household) because someone in our group said, ‘Please! That means just one more child will get to eat if we do.’ How can you say no to that?”
The kids made and distributed sandwiches for the homeless.
They picked out and gave gifts to children at the Open Arms Orphanage.
After a year of hard work, the girls had a chance to get together and look back on all their accomplishments. They spent the day reflecting on the year and watching an inspirational movie.
