On Valentine’s Day women of the Rotary Club of Dallas took a vase of flowers and chocolates to each of the women being served at Our Friends Place.
Our Friends Place in Dallas, Texas, helps young women break generational cycles of abuse, neglect, poverty and homelessness through their Transitional Living Center and SOAR to Success prevention programs. With each of the vases was a hand decorated card signed by Rotarian women. Each card had inspirational messages to give them encouragement to continue their work toward self-sufficiency. A volunteer at the center described the impact of this thoughtful action on the women she cares for: The girls were so excited to have the flowers. One said it was the only Valentine she had received, and another said it really made the day special to know someone remembered her. Valentine’s Day – A great day for Rotarian acts of kindness.
