GLENDORA–One of the Glendora Woman’s Club’s service projects each year at Easter time is the YWCA WINGS (Women In Need Growing Strong) Shelter for battered women, accompanied by their children.

For the Woman’s Club’s recent Easter project, clubmembers packaged and wrapped eight Easter Baskets, one for each of the children currently staying with their mothers at the Shelter. Each basket was filled with toys and gifts basked on the child’s age and gender, said chair Rose Myers.

gDuring the year, the Woman’s Club also provides Mother’s Day corsages and gift bags for the others staying at the WINGS shelter on Mother’s Day. In addition, the Woman’s Club provides personal supplies, clothing for children, and gifts for children at Christmas time.

This year marks the 30th year that the Glendora Woman’s Club has selected the WINGS Shelter as one of its ongoing service projects, said Club President Chris Lear.
