DWC Holiday gathering and homeless mom gift collection

The DWC will hold its annual holiday gathering and gift drive for homeless moms on Monday, December 13 at 2:00 p.m. One of the members has generously offered to host the event at her home. The event will feature light refreshments and some fun activities. To find out more about the event and/or RSVP, please send an email to dwcofcharlottecounty@gmail.com.

Every year the Democratic Women’s Club of Charlotte County collects gift cards and personal items, such as lotions, soaps, and shampoos for the homeless mothers whose children attend the Charlotte Public Schools.  Gift cards for grocery stores, supercenter stores, or gas stations are especially appreciated.  If you would like to donate to the DWC’s 2021 collection, there are several ways to contribute by December 11.

  • Send a gift card or check to Judith Orlowski, DWC Treasurer at 1181 Dewhurst Street, Port Charlotte, FL  33952.  Make the checks out to the DWC and include a note or memo on the check, indicating it is for the holiday homeless donations.
  • Drop a donation off in the designated box at the Charlotte County Democratic Club located on the first floor of 3596 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte FL  33952 (Sunnydell Plaza).  The club is open M-F 10:00 until noon.

If you are a member of the DWC:

  • Bring a gift bag or gift card enclosed in a greeting card to the DWC’s holiday gathering on December 13. 

The DWC will deliver the gift cards and other gift items to the Charlotte County School’s homeless program following the December 13 event. Last year we collected over $1000 worth of gift cards to bring holiday cheer to some moms in need.

The DWC appreciates all donations.
