Even though it is only 1 day before the New Year, Sweet Charities members met to discuss a fundraising plan for Mend, an organization that services the homeless. Sweet Charities SFV is planning a January end event that will be the biggest in the group’s history.
The event will be a Sock Hop at a local mall. Details will be announced this week.
Sweet Charities SFV recently created a Facebook Page for the group itself as well as one with updates for Operation Cover Those Toes. We hope you choose to LIKE both pages and subscribe to our mailing list for updates and announcements.
Heidi Mankoff, a small business strategist and marketer, who has vast experience running large fundraisers, has taken the lead to organize the event. She is the owner of Tall Ideas LLC.
Star Tomlinson, who originated the idea for the fundraiser, has local locations where packages of socks as well as new and slightly used shoes can be dropped off. Star is the owner of The Drain Company. Please contact her at (818) 344-1114 if you have shoes and socks to drop off.
Other members have signed up for various tasks and all are excited about the event.
If you are a local community member and would like to donate a raffle prize, please contact Rebecca Olkowski at 818-515-7880.
Sweet Charities meets every Thursday morning at 7am at Panera Bread in Northridge.
