Year-End Giving TWC
TWC leaves a Welcome Card for weary families who are finally off the streets and can begin to regain hope and dignity in their fully furnished new home.
Topanga Women’s Circle’s (TWC) current Challenge Grant 2020 campaign is more important than ever and they are counting on the generosity of those who support their mission to help get through this most demanding of times. Because of the pandemic, there has been a 14% increase in homelessness. As a result, families are moving much more rapidly out of transitional housing and into permanent housing resulting in providing many more units than ever before, on average 8-10 a month. Great news for the families, but lots more shopping for TWC! In keeping with Covid-19 restrictions, TWC’s Bin at Pine Tree Circle is no longer open for donations on Saturday mornings but will re-open once the world returns to normal. Because of the generous Kick Start donations of several Topanga families, all donations made by December 31, 2020, will be matched and doubled and are guaranteed to improve the lives of the veterans and homeless families that TWC serves. Topanga Women’s Circle mission has always been to help give families in transition a sense of pride in their new home. After experiencing the unrelenting difficulties of being homeless, to finally move into their new apartment and see fresh new bedding and towels, a kitchen filled with everything needed to cook a meal, including a full fridge and pantry, a table beautifully set for dinner, and age-appropriate toys and books for the children, these weary families can finally take a deep breath and know they are on the road to recovery. They are off the streets and can begin to regain hope and dignity... they are home at last. TWC dedicated volunteers have set up more than 1,500 apartments since its founding, in both the Westwood Transitional Village complex and Venice Community Housing’s Transitional Living Center for moms and kids.  To donate online: topangawomenscircle.org and select “Donate”; To donate by mail: Make checks payable to: Community Partners fbo TWC and send to: Community Partners. P.O. Box 741265, Los Angeles, CA 90074-1265 To become part of the TWC volunteer family, please select the “Join Us” tab on the website.
