Our members were most generous in contributing to “Undie Sundays” at St. Paul's Church, and we filled an SUV with diapers, underpants and undershirts, onesies, socks and sleepwear for the children of Camden. All this was organized by Chris Taylor, a club member and volunteer at Seeds of Hope.

Seeds of Hope Ministries in Camden is an organization that helps the homeless, men and women reentering life from prison (and their children), and women who have drug issues or are on the street. Just in time for back to school, they collected and distributed new items for children who have a mom or dad in prison.

Thank you so much for your generosity!
