impact's 2015 Xmas hamper packing day
- a snapshot:
. More than 306 volunteers! (306 people signed in but we saw some people who didn't get to do that)
. 67 of those people were school children each of which has had a Certificate of Appreciation sent to their school
. 750 hampers packed!
. 42 BIG bags of necessities for refuges to distribute!
. 72 BIG bags of toys to help Santa out!
Thank you EVERYONE - donors, drivers, setter-uppers, volunteers, cleaner-uppers, people who sent messages of support, and Claudine and David Zucker of Beaglier Books who put their business on hold to allow us to use their warehouse... THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!
We also heard three versions of Lesley Gore's You Don't Own Me.

. her original 1963 version
. her reworded and rearranged version of 2005 which was the backdrop to our very moving memorial
. and the version made popular again in 1996 by The First Wives Club
