 and restoration to assist victims of commercial sexual exploitation
 and domestic sex trafficking.

Each month at the Great Oaks meeting, a table is set up to collect either your monetary donations (cash or check payable to A Safe Place) for the themed needs of the month. Since we aren't meeting until at least January, 
check their website for ways in which you can help.

Thanks to our members' generosity all year and to Carol Evans' Facemask Project, we were able to meet our monetary goal to provide
A Safe Place with the funds for new dressers in May of 2020. 

Cape Fear Guardian Ad Litem Association, an organization which promotes the
best interests of abused, neglected and dependent children
in the North Carolina court system,
through our Gingerbread House Project during the holidays.
