WhirlWind Creative chooses a Charity for the Holidays

The calendar just turned over to November, which means we are quickly approaching the end of 2010. Hard to believe another year has flown by so fast!

It also means the Holiday Season is coming up and every year the staff here at WhirlWind Creative chooses a local charity to work with and contribute to over the holidays. This year, we have chosen CVAN – the Cabarrus Vicitims Assistance Network. CVAN provides safety, shelter and support for battered women and their children in Cabarrus County.

CVAN is currently collecting items and donations as part of their Holiday Program 2010. We are going to work gathering small donations for these women and their families and we hope you will jump in and help! Details are below and don’t forget to save-the-date – WhirlWind Creative is hosting an indoor yard sale on Saturday, November 20. We’ll be collecting donations for CVAN at the door.

Holiday Program 2010
What is our Holiday Program?

Our Holiday Program provides the women and children we’ve worked with the opportunity to receive gifts from our new donated items. We are very excited about the holidays and we hope that you are excited too, because we need your help!

How can I help with CVAN’s Holiday Program?

For the women we need:
new bath and body sets, kitchenware, linens, bathrobes, slippers, pajamas, sweatpants, sweatshirts and gift cards (i.e. discount, grocery stores).

For the shelter we need:
gift cards (i.e. discount, grocery stores), alarm clocks, umbrellas, and wrapping paper.

For families and the shelter we need:
Food –boxed foods and staples such as peanut butter, pasta, tuna, hamburger helper, cereal, spaghetti sauce, soup, rice, juice etc.

For the children & teens we need:
