HOME

“I love everything that’s old, old friends, old times, old houses, old manners, old gardens, old books, old wine. I hope to spread that love to others— Hope is such a bait, it covers any hook. Like the gleaming taper’s light, adorns and cheers our way; and still, as darker grows the night, emits a brighter ray.”

– Oliver Goldsmith

HURRICANE SEASON IS HERE!

Stock your supplies early –You’ll need more water than you think—IT’S HOT DURING HURRICANE SEASON! . . . . . put SUPPLIES in a box, label them, and put them somewhere where you won’t access them in the course of your daily pantry raids. – I label mine and put them at the bottom of my pantry with my appliances – that way I don’t look at the cans and think — “Hrm.. beef stew looks good today”…. I don’t use anything in that inventory unless I’ve got something to replace them. Keep an inventory list and keep in mind that there ARE expiration dates!

Let’s Throw in the Towel!

Avondale is beginning it’s first annual “Throw in the Towel” campaign to donate towels for The Women’s Home.

About The Women’s Home: The Women’s Home is located within Avondale, For over 50 years, The Women’s Home has been helping women build whole lives. We offer women — many who are homeless and lack job skills or education due to substance abuse and mental illness — a home and a model of care called Whole Life. Sometimes, the incoming clients of The Women’s Home “overwhelm” their stock of Bath towels. To maintain a high level of hygiene many more towels are needed. This is a wonderful organization, please donate towels at 607 Westheimer.

During the Holiday Season Avondale residents donate bath and health products to The Women’s Home and to Covenant House.
