Donation from Today’s Civic Women

The feminine product shelf of Northwest’s Food Pantry.

On Tuesday, Feb. 5, We Gotchya was presented with a $100 donation from Maryville’s philanthropic group, Today’s Civic Women. We can’t express how grateful we are for not only the monetary donation, but mostly the support for our group.

TCW’s purpose is: To promote community and individual development and fellowship among its members. It supports causes such as Toys for Tots, Camp Quality, and Relay for Life.  It’s an honor to be supported by such an established, community-focused group.

On Feb. 15, we stocked the Food Pantry at Northwest Missouri State University with a supply of tampons, pads and pantyliners and topped off baskets in the Union, Library and Administration Building.

Since adding new signs to the baskets, we believe we’re seeing more participation in filling baskets. This change is significant, as it will allow We Gotchya to focus monetary and product efforts on supplying the Food Pantry, helping women at House of Hope Haiti, and supply other Maryville social services, which is our long-term goal.

Information about Maryville’s Today’s Civic Women can be found at this Nodaway News volunteer page and also at the group’s Facebook page.

Thank you TCW!
