CHALLENGE #39-2021 

Tundra Women's Coalition

Bethel, Alaska

The Tundra Women's Coalition is located in Bethel, a community of about 6,500 residents in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta area of Alaska.   In 1978 the first shelter was opened in a renovated quonset hut.  In 2009 they received a grant to build a new state-of-the-art shelter.

An anticipated 20% cut in their federal funding in the near future will mean a significant loss in services.

The winters are long and hard in Alaska.  Let's send warm and toasty slippers to warm lots of toes and hearts!  We upped the numbers so they will have enough to last all winter. 

If you do not want to have to worry about shipping costs but would like to contribute to this challenge,  gift cards are welcome so that shelters can select supplies they need.   Tundra Women's Coalition has requested Amazon cards only due to their remote location and limited local stores.

We are off to Alaska!

Christine Ann Domestic Abuse Services

Oshkosh, Wisconsin

Christine Ann is a repeat shelter for us and they have enjoyed everything they have received.  Although they don't have a pet program, they do have a shelter dog, Ross.  He is well loved by everyone and he especially enjoyed receiving the blanket that was made just for him and got very excited about it.  That means we'll send him a nice new one!  Christine Ann incorporates knitting and crocheting in their self-care support group.  This group is a wonderful place for their clients to focus on themselves and find different ways to care for themselves physically and mentally. Knitting and crocheting definitely fits into that category.  We are all very aware of the benefits received from picking up our own needles and hooks.
