“Dear Hazelwood,

We here at the YWCA of Muncie were so honored to receive the $300 contribution that you made to our organization. Every day your contribution helps to provide shelter services and advocacy for women and children throughout Central Indiana without a place to call home. Food, hygiene products, bedding, health and wellness, economic empowerment, and other essential services aid those we serve as they begin the transition from crisis living to self-sufficiency.

The YWCA of Muncie is on a mission to create real change. Thank you for joining us as we endeavor to continue eliminating racism, empowering women, and assisting those without a home to call their own.

Once again, we say thank you. Our staff and residents sincerely appreciate being able to count on your support.”

~WaTasha Barnes Griffin, Executive Director, Muncie YWCA



Saturday, July 28, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Fairgrounds Memorial Building

This event is for children that live and attend school in Delaware County. Goals are to provide school supplies and a NEW pair of shoes for students who are not able to afford them. Each organization that helps has one size, one gender– that way there will be enough shoes in each size to meet the needs of the Back to School Distribution on Saturday, July 28.

Hazelwood has been asked to provide 50 NEW pairs of BOY’S/MEN’S SIZE 5 ATHLETIC SHOES. We will be collecting now through Sunday, July 22. There will be a tote in the Rotunda for the donated NEW BOY’S/MEN’S SIZE 5 ATHLETIC SHOES. Please remove shoes from boxes, tie laces together, and place in the tote. Thanks!

For more information, contact Shirley Bookout at (765) 744-1207.
