#1. Items for a yard sale to benefit Lesotho Orphanage in Africa, in June, and,
#2. METAL wheelchairs, walkers, and cains to benefit the underprivileged in Guatemala (we will accept broken ones as inmates at a Nashville jail will repair and prepare them for shipment), in September.
Both are GFWC Cookeville Junior Woman's Club events.
