RICHARDSON ALTRUSA KINDNESS NINJA WARRIORS GATHER TO WORK FOR KINDNESS WEEKEND
Every April, Altrusa International of Richardson’s Kindness Ninja Warriors celebrate Kindness Weekend, a community initiative begun by the club in April 2016. Members of the Altrusa Kindness Committee gathered Saturday, May 1, 2021 for action in celebration of this year’s project, which was twofold:
· Gather pajamas for adults to be delivered to Pajamas for Seniors and to one of the assisted living centers in Richardson. Many, particularly those covered by Medicaid are especially in need. Seven sets of pajamas and gowns were given to Jo Alch of Pajamas for Seniors along with donations from members in the amount of $250. Eight sets of pajamas and gowns were delivered to Twin Rivers Assisted Living.
· Make notecards for two of our assisted living facilities. The notecards, which were blank, were hand-decorated by members and delivered in batches of five – complete with stamps for mailing. One hundred notecards were delivered to Appletree Court Assisted Living and to Twin Rivers Assisted Living.
Many thanks to Friends Place in Richardson for all your help.
OUTSTANDING WOMEN OF TODAY 2021
Outstanding Women of Today 2021 will be a transition year for Altrusa Richardson from our annual Luncheon to a Reception honoring women who exemplified determination and leadership during the pandemic. Richardson Altrusans would like to honor “Unsung Heroes” who served in frontline positions that made a difference in our community.
Honorees and their organizations will be recognized this year at the 2021 Outstanding Women of Today: Unsung Heroes Reception scheduled for Friday afternoon, October 22, 2021 at the Richardson Women’s Club Founders Hall.
Our ultimate goal is to return to hosting our Outstanding Women of Today Luncheon.
