News from February 2019
In February, we celebrated love. Our parents created beautiful Valentine Love Boxes. They had a great time, and the boxes turned out so good! They look forward to craft days and expressing their talents.
Our Cooking Matters workshop is continuing and will be finished in March. We are so thankful to Glades Initiative for providing this class for our parents to learn how to cook healthy meals on a budget. We look forward to our next 6-week series as this one is always a big hit.
Tuesdays will be led by Clara Hessing with the Palm Beach County Youth Services. It will consist of helping our parents with their parenting skills. This is such an essential and informative class. It’s a proven fact that moms will listen to their mom’s/grandmother’s parenting advice over the pediatrician. As times have changed, we have come to realize that safety standards have also changed. We want to help our parents raise their children in a safe environment.
Bible study is an ongoing Wednesday class with a good turnout. It is led by Denise who takes extra time in converting her study sheets into Creole as most of our parents are Haitian.
We are busy planning a wonderful Mother’s Day outing for our moms. It will be a day of pampering and letting them know how proud we are of them.
We have received many donations of clothing and baby gear this past month, and we are incredibly grateful! Your donations help keep the closet open.
On behalf of everyone at Ella’s Closet, we thank you for your continued support, and kindly ask that you keep us in your continued prayers.
