The Lawrenceville Women’s Club embraced the girls’ school in Afghanistan at their Nov. 3 meeting.
Cheryl Harewood, chair of the service club’s International Department, heard about the school project and arranged for the handmade Afghan textiles to be sold at the meeting.
Members bought $524 worth of textiles and soaps to support it.
They also wrote personal postcards to the girls:
“I will be praying for you from Lawrenceville Georgia,” wrote one donor. “Remember you matter.”
Janice L. wrote, “I’m so proud to be a part of your school. Every time I use my beautiful pouch I will think of you.”
