NEAWP December Meeting

NEAWP December Meeting

The Holiday season is in full swing.  Shopping malls are full of gifts, shoppers, and decor to let everyone know the holiday season is upon us.  Even Starbucks rolled out the favorite holiday flavors and decor back in early November!

It’s a time of year for sharing with friends and loved ones…so in the spirit of all this, we are ready for our upcoming NEAWP Holiday lunch on December 5 at Fogo de Chao.  Make sure to Register and pay by Monday December 3, 2012.  Come see friends and colleagues before the holiday season kicks into high gear for us all.  Many thanks to Premiere Party Central and Fluerish Austin for decor and design!!  So what’s in store?  Our annual gift exchange will be happening.  Bring a $15.- gift to throw into the mix.  What did you get last year?  Can you be more creative this year?  Can’t wait to see what everyone brings!

Philanthropic update for our Holiday Charity:

This Christmas we will be adopting a family through Safeplace.  SafePlace works to end sexual and domestic violence through safety, healing, prevention and social change.  The holidays are a difficult time for those served by SafePlace. The violence they have suffered, the issues of homelessness they face and a severe lack of resources make it extraordinarily difficult for them to celebrate the season.  This year we have chosen to adapt a larger family.  This family consists of a single mother, Cecilia (age 29), and her 5 children: Carlos (age 15), Jose (age 13), Valerie (age 10),  Xavier (age 6), and Veronica (age 5).  Each family member has asked for one specific item for Christmas.  Please dig deep and donate so we can give this family a wonderful holiday.  For Further information please contact Kerri Parker. Kerri will be taking the donation amount after the meeting to purchase the gifts for the family.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!!  Wishing everyone a safe and festive holiday season and a great start to a New Year!!!!
