Many local charities that distribute holiday gifts find that middle school youth fall off the radar when people are making their donations. There are many reasons, but one is that this age can sometimes be a little harder to shop for.
For the second year, Women’s Leadership Council collected gifts for middle school students. With help from Hands On Asheville-Buncombe, they will get them to programs serving kids in need. This group started collecting items at the beginning of October and held a wrapping party at Higland Brewing Company on Giving Tuesday, December 2.
It was a great time for WLC members to catch up—and bring a friend or two who might be interested in joining this group of generous and dynamic women.
Thanks to Highland Brewing Company for letting us take over their tasting room! Additional thanks to annual sponsors Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP, Northwestern Mutual and Mission Health for making events for affinity groups possible.
