At our February 23rd meeting, 100 Women Who Care-Franklin County selected Timmy’s Kids as the recipient of a collective donation from our chapter of 100 Women Who Care. The donation will support the Swanton Teen Center and Tim’s House and these donations from 100 Women Who Care Franklin County will support programs that provide financial planning and work education to parents as well as emotional support and mentorship to young children. The Swanton Teen Center regularly hosts 15-20 students on an average school night. The numbers are higher on Thursday nights when a hot meal is provided and discussions around healthy choices and everyday challenges for teens are open, honest and supporting. Tim’s House supported almost 150 families and individuals in 2017. There are currently 76 adults and 39 children on the waiting list. Tim’s House has the highest percent success of all shelters in Vermont with almost 80% never needing homeless support again.
If you were not able to attend the meeting Tuesday, February 27th, please make out a check to Timmy’s Kids, Inc. in the amount of $50.00 and mail it to 100 Women Who Care Franklin County, c/o Karyn Rocheleau, 21 Summit Place, St. Albans, VT 05478.
