Thank you everyone for contributing to our annual Mother’s Day Bags for Positive Images.  As we approach this year’s giving, here is the current status.

We have enough cosmetic samples (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, body lotion, and bars of soap).  However, if you have been collecting them and still want to drop them off, I will store them, or we will give more than one to all the women.

Thanks also for all the bag (like Kroger) donations.  We have enough but I will save more for next year if you find you have more than you need.

We are accepting the following:

Oprah Magazines
Nail polish
Coffee Mugs
Cosmetic travel pouches
Toothpaste (samples)
Key Chain
Dental floss
Costume Jewelry
Small jewelry boxes

So if you have some of these items you wish to donate, please contact Mary Ellen Burke at:



​February was a busy month with "plus" activities for the women who come to the parenting class. Mary Ellen, Ellen, Jane, and Diana showed GIRLS RISING in segments of three stories for two weeks. They were well received with good comments from the women.
Dorothy organized the valentine craft and Ellen mailed valentines for any woman who wanted her valentine mailed! 

Carol H. with her friend Toni, made a special presentation of her African artifacts.  The women were very interested and asked many questions about the village in Africa.
Nancy continues her work with journal writing with the women at P. I. II. Everyone involved in this activity is inspired! Diane K. and Laura are wonderful facilitators for the Parenting classes.

Mary Ellen keeps the computer room open for the women on Tuesdays.
Positive Images! None of these "plus" activities would happen without SIGP's time and commitment to Positive Images!
