“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

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.
