Frauen Helfen Frauen Giving Tree 2019

Frauen Helfen Frauen Giving Tree 2019

 

In keeping with one of our favorite annual traditions, the IWCS is once again supporting  Frauen helfen Frauen e.V. by creating a virtual Holiday Gift Tree for its residents this December!

Every year our members can sign up to buy gifts for the women and children living in the Frauenhaus. You will receive the age of the women and the age/gender/interests of the children to assist you in choosing what to buy.

If you would like to take part, please message Sandra using the contact form below. Once we have the numbers and ages, she will give you the go ahead to start shopping! We do not yet know how many people we need, so we will assign folks on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Please choose a gift valued between €15-20 and try to keep in mind that the shelter is multicultural and many of the families might not yet have strong German skills. You will need to wrap the gift and add a tag with the age/gender information you were given to identify who it is for.

You can drop the finished gifts off at Sandra’s house in Stuttgart-Zazenhausen or mail them to her. She will also be collecting gifts at the Members Only Holiday Dinner as always.

Thank you to all of our members for your continuing enthusiasm for this project every year!

In keeping with one of our favorite annual traditions, the IWCS is once again supporting the women of Frauen helfen Frauen e.V. by creating a virtual Holiday Gift Tree for them this December!

There are almost 30 women and children currently living in the Frauenhaus. Because this is a much smaller number than usual, this year IWC Stuttgart members will also have a chance to buy gifts for children in addition to the women.

If you would like to help, please contact Sandra using the contact form below. Once we have the numbers and ages, she will contact you to give you the go ahead to start shopping!

Please choose a gift valued between €15-20 and try to keep in mind that the shelter is multicultural and many of the families might not yet have strong German skills.
