GLENDORA—One of the Glendora Woman’s Club’s special service projects during the Holiday Season is the YWCA WINGS (Women in Need Growing Strong) Shelter for battered women with their children.

This year marks the 29th year the Woman’s Club has selected the WINGS Shelter Project as one of its major ongoing service projects, said project chair Rose Myers.

For the Club’s recent Christmas service project for the WINGS Shelter, clubmembers assembled Christmas stocking gift bags for the seven children currently staying with their mothers at the Shelter.  The gift bags were filled with gifts and toys that were matched to the children staying at the Shelter through their age and gender, said project chair Mrs. Myers.

Also during the year, the Woman’s Club sends other items to the WINGS Shelter, including Easter Baskets for the children, Mother’s Day gifts, personal supplies, and children’s toys and games..

The club’s many ongoing service projects through the year are made possible through the continuing support and participation by the clubmembers and community friends, said Club President Chris Lear.
