The Women’s Retreat at Genesis UMC on March 25th this year will be collecting feminine products to donate to Crowley House of Hope and Neighborhood Needs for distribution to women in need in our community. This ministry was selected to honor the memory of Rebecca Read and her efforts to help those in need.
There are Blue Boxes in the Commons Area of the Church for the collection of items. For those unable to attend the retreat but with a desire to donate, please feel free to place your item(s) in the boxes. After the Women’s Retreat, we will transport the boxes to Crowley House of Hope and Neighborhood Needs.
Thank you for your Blessing to others.
"The world lost the radiant Rebecca Read in July of 2016. Becca was a Girl Scout and as a Girl Scout, the biggest honor was receiving her gold award. Becca's gold award was "The Blue Box Project" which collected feminine products for women's shelters around the DFW area. Becca put others before self and this project was a testament to who she was as a person."
