March 2017 Ongoing Programs
- L. Keefe Center: Hats, mittens, gloves and scarves are needed for children and adults this time of year. Our committee has been able to drop off school supplies, and the hats and scarves knit by the TBS Knitters. Using donation funds, school supplies and mittens were purchased and donated. Thank you to those who have been donating funds to the Diane Kaplan Fund. This allows us to purchase these necessary supplies for those in need in our community.
