Cabrini Immigrant Services (CIS), Dobbs Ferry, NY, held a Giving Back Program to benefit an organization that assists Muslim women who are victims of domestic violence. Some of our ‘alums’ who are now in high school, along with some of the women in our Knitting Group, made 150 packets of different items to donate to the organization. The bags were filled with hand lotion, a small mirror, Chapstick, a pen and notebook, tissues, a facial mask, a keychain with a positive saying, such as “You are strong” and a pair of socks.
Thank you to Tom Costello, from The Joy of Sox, in Pennsylvania, who donated150 pairs of socks to add to the individual bags.
The program was organized by one of our Human Services Intern, Danna Morales, from Westchester Community College. Danna explained about the organization and the different types of services that it has for women who are victims of domestic violence.
Thank you to all who helped to make the lives of these women better
