Comfort Kits

We will continue to make our Comfort Kits for recent mastectomy patients while following COVID-19 safety guidelines.

A DAY OF SERVICE

In February, Soroptimist volunteered at Oxnard High School for a track meet to sell tickets to lunch and a 50/50 raffle. Proceeds from the event went to a scholarship to help kids needing shoes and clothing to compete. Helping out were Marion Scherer, Gail Hower, Pat Wilson and Juliann Laufer. Thank you, ladies, for taking time out of your day to help others!

PROTOTYPES GETS DECORATED!

The Service Team happily decorated the common rooms of the Oxnard Branch of Prototypes Women’s Center that offers inpatient treatment for women with alcohol and/or substance addiction. The program includes dual diagnosis treatment, individual counseling, group therapy, and more. The Team brought holiday confections and hot chocolate to share. Pictured are President Carole Savala, Christy Franco, and Pam Cady.

ELDER & DEPENDENT ADULT ABUSE AWARENESS MONTH

The month of June 2021 was declared Elder & Dependent Adult Abuse Awareness Month by the United Nations. The Oxnard Police Department's Family Protection Unit partnered with several agencies in the County to bring awareness to the potential abuse (physical, emotional, financial) that can victimize our elder community. In addition to the signs in front of the police station, the OPD Family Protection Unit made an awareness video https://youtu.be/TBuTMfYwu3o and received a proclamation from the City Council. SI/Oxnard is a proud sponsor of the OPD/FPU's program.

SHIMLA DAS: SPEAK UP FOR THE POOR

We are proud to sponsor Shimla Das, a young teen in Bangladesh, in cooperation with Speak Up for the Poor (www.speakupforthepoor.org) within their Girls Education Program. The program empowers girls to stay in school, to have a voice in the decisions that affect their own lives, and to have greater opportunities to pursue their dreams and rise out of poverty. Shimla is in eighth grade this year and lives in Baratia village with her family. Shimla is interested in becoming a police officer.

OXNARD PERFORMING ARTS AND CONVENTION CENTER

The Courtyard Fountain at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center may not have water in it anymore, but it represents water in its new life as a succulent planter. Soroptimist International of Oxnard was the main sponsor of the beautiful creation by Heritage Succulents.
