A truck delivered 1160 pounds of food & products for TLC families to our battered women's shelter. A generous "check" also matched the 1160 pounds donation!! Thank you SO MUCH to Susan Sharp, fundraiser drive coordinator and all the folks at Autoform Tool & Mfg., Inc., Angola, Indiana - WOW!!!
"Walk a Mile in my Shoes" raised $4000.00!!
A Donation of $750 in interior paint from Sherwin Williams, Angola was received to freshen up our safe house. Volunteers from Trine University's Theta Phi Alpha will spend a weekend of fun helping us paint! Our TLC Intern, Edu, along with some friends from Women In Transition will paint bedrooms, the family room and the laundry room. Glorious!
Thanks to all attendees of our annual fundraiser who generously donated to our Mission of providing a safe house for women and their children who have suffered under abusive relationships.
Special appreciation to Farmers State Bank and President, Joe Pierce, for donating the house and property, the contributions of time and treasure to those who helped remodel our facility and the ongoing charitable supporters who help sustain our shelter.
The fundraising dinner raised over $4000.00! Heartfelt “Thanks” to Sally Zintsmaster, an original founder and past president of TLC House Indiana, who organized and coordinated the event; Mike and Martha Brudney, Board Members, who prepared the delicious food; Trine University students who volunteered to help serve the meal and clean-up afterwards; to our residents who lovingly decorated shoes as centerpieces for biding at each dining table and to all the Board of Directors who volunteered their time and monetary contributions.
