Together We Make It Happen!

 We are Republican women, we are here, and we care!


Caring For America Projects for 2020

Caring for America is starting 2020 with new initiatives! One of our important projects will be working with 40 Days for Life. For the March meeting, we need your help in getting supplies to fill “Blessing Bags”. These are small gift bags filled with toiletries and literature geared to pro-life that will be provided to young women as they arrive at Planned Parenthood.  Please bring your donation, in bulk, of small bottles of nail polish, pocket-sized packs of Kleenex & small hand sanitizers for the Blessing Bags to the March meeting. These items, in bulk, can be found on-line and at Dollar Tree stores.  Cash donations are also appreciated. We expect to help fill 350 Blessing Bags in April! We will have sign-up sheets at the luncheon to volunteer for this worthwhile project.
