pamper dayWe are very pleased to report that our latest Quarterly Pamper and Support Day was a great success! Many thanks to The Circle of Inspiration for co-hosting this event with us. Vernetta Eddleman, COI Executive Director and support group facilitator, led another engaging meeting. It was followed by delicious foods and our pamper activity of choice this time was Pamper Bags. The bags included an array of toiletries, bath salts, lipstick, mascara, perfume, beauty masks, pens, notepads and candy by way of Avon, Mary Kay and the YWCA of Memphis.

A very special thank you to Sharon Puryear (Mary Kay, candy, pens, notepads, bags), Patricia Loofbourrow (Avon), Elizabeth Shelley (YWCA) and Commissioner Heidi Shafer (Mary Kay).

February is always recognized for Valentine’s Day and ‘love month.’ It’s always important for those who are dealing with or have dealt with abuse to understand that self love is necessary. Doing the bags this time was our way of making sure that attendees received inner support through the group and outer support through the items in the bags. This is our holistic way of continuing to show our support for victims, survivors and advocates.

We look forward to presenting the next quarterly pamper and support day. Details coming soon.
