Pink Slipper Project Update

Elizabeth Newell, Program Advocacy Director  
Elizabeth Newell, our Program Advocacy Director, has just delivered 300 pairs of slippers via the Pink Slipper Project coming through for our women and children living in women's shelters.  Newell organized the facilitation and delivery on her own with the important help of Joyce Lucas, founder of The Pink Slipper Project, and her valuable supporters.  Women from all over the United States have come together to crochet, knit or hand sew these adorable pieces of footwear to warm hearts and toes.

Newell scheduled her deliver to the Quad City Family Resources Services yesterday and the slippers will be distributed among shelters in Iowa and Illinois.  With 300 more on the way via Pink Slipper Project challenges, Newell will give the Quad Cities the opportunity to supply the women and children with slippers for one year to all residents.  Big high five to Elizabeth Newell, Joyce Lucas and the Pink Slipper Project ladies!
